Had a few hours to kill before my delayed flight so I decided to check out the museum. I thought admission was pretty inexpensive but then realized there wasn't that much to see. I was disappointed in the lack of exhibits. Maybe I'm used to bigger museums but felt the two headed snake was the highlight of the museum.

museum is very well done. Many visuals for those who aren't interested in reading, but enough details for those to learn more if desired. Live animals and dioramas. The largest rattlesnake I ever want to see! Great walking path to experience the ecology. We enjoyed our visit and highly recommend visiting.
