There was no admission fee, but our trip was priceless. From the welcoming, friendly staff, to the local art exhibit, to the dinosaur exhibit..and everything in between, our family was impressed! Where else can you go in Farmington for free, and have so much fun?

Semi-permanent exhibits of the local near history, Anasazi, Navajo, Hopi culture. New, modern facility....More

Bensalem: I didn't notice any signs about bringing dogs into the museum. I presume that only service dogs are allowed, though often that is overlooked if your dog is small and is carried in a dog carrier/bag. There is an... More
