This museum at WWCC was especially interesting in the animal section, but there wasn't much information on each species or behaviors. The dinosaur bones and collections were enormous and very awe-inspiring. I would recommend for a quick walk through the museum/campus.

The museum only had three dinosaurs, a stegosaur, triceratops, and the largest, most complete ichthyosaur I've ever seen. I had hope for more natural history items, but was thrilled with the three dinosaurs. Still worth the stop.

This museum is not your typical museum. Some objects are in a "room" but others are around the building. Having a tour guide made the experience more informative.

Not only are they replicas of dinosaur skeletons scattered around, but there are some highly polished slabs of rock with embedded fossils. The story behind the Pendulum is fascinating. Certainly one of the best collections of stuffed animals we have seen. The caretaker was just...More

Surprisingly first rate natural history museum. Many fossils and complete dinosaur skeletons. There is also a room containing a large number of mounted big game animals. No fees
