Small by most museum standards, but very interesting. Especially for Longmont residents. Very good history of the area and what a significant part sugar beets played in our background.

This museum has a lot to offer. Their presentations are wonderful. Whether it is an exhibit or one of many other cultural events. I enjoy their music nights especially. I take my grandchildren there often.

Half the museum is free. The other half is a special exhibit that costs $8. Currently this exhibit is a dinosaur exhibit. Both halves are well done and take about 15 minutes each. Was it worth $8 for the dinosaurs? Not really.More

Hi Garret! The permanent history exhibit is free. The special exhibitions are $8 for adults or $5 for students and seniors. Children age three and under are admitted for free to special exhibitions, as are Museum members.
