While small, this place definitely provides some interesting and varied exhibits. Particularly enjoyed the live animals (snakes, cockroaches, lizards, turtles, etc). Kept a 3 year entertained for almost an hour. The staff is very friendly. Definitely check it out if you are in the area...More

A very small museum with a hodgepodge of small mostly static displays. If you have been to ANY other natural science museum you will be disappointed. Go to the George H W Bush Presidential Library instead.

This museum is small, but well done. It has some great fossils and historical artifacts from the area. In order to see and read everything expect to spend 1-1:30 hours.
