We had gone to the area to visit Fossil Rock and Camel Rock and came upon this delightful museum and cafe. The museum is well laid out, interesting and the staff friendly. The cost was nominal and the cafe after was a welcome bonus.

You will need to arrange a ride. When I was there it was empty at the end of the tour, so no taxis around. They offer it as additional cost. Note I drove myself.
