Very nice smaller museum, two rooms of local artifacts. The dinosaur tracks are under a large covered area so you can stay out of the sun while viewing them. The price of admission is very reasonable.

Very cool to check size of your foot with that of a dinosaurs. This location was once the beach area before shifting of earth. Finding new Dino tracks also in area will make this a even more cool place to spend a afternoon.
