A really hands on museum for families. Many dinosaur fossils as well as a Paleo Ding and a recreated flood that you can watch from three different levels. Pan for gold- it's not as easy as it looks!- and try not to get locked up in one of the original territorial jail cells!
Tips for Families
You can take home the gold you find, which makes a fun souvenir!
