I had heard good things about this museum. The exhibits on dinosaurs is good. They have an extensive native American pottery collection and a few other artifacts that is interesting to see.

This is a treat because they have permanent exhibits if your doing a study and they have exhibits that change monthly. The planitarium is wonderful and they have special exhibits too! And the cultural center is within walking distance so you can go to spend a day with history and mystery and astrology all in one area!

Up stairs are ONLY office doors assuming they hold classes for University students there. There are pictures upstairs between the doors but that is... More

This museum is wonderful. The southwest art is amazing in the Bill and Evelyn Davies collection. The dinosaurs are cool, and the Ranching Heritage tour is one of a kind.
