The gift shop is arguably more interesting than the museum displays themselves! We found the cultural displays more interesting than the historical ones. There is a case with beautiful native silver and turquoise jewelry, some of which is available for purchase.

Excellent condensed presentations of geology, dinosaurs, exploration and more. Every member of your group should find at least one area of interest. One room is set up like an old trading post, with opportunities to buy some of the items on display.

We really enjoyed this small museum- it is just the right size. We were able to see very nice exhibits without killing a day. The ladies running it are some of the nicest people you will ever meet.
