We lived the museum! We arrived Tuesday around 1PM, just as the school kids were leaving. Perfect!! My husband is an austringer, so the visiting birds of prey exhibit was perfect!! Love the local Chumas Indian artifacts & history.
small museum that houses a lot of artifacts and fossils. A fee to enter. get ready to spend about 2 hours tops. another fee to watch the stargazing film.
This is the best venue to take your kids for so many reasons. It is affordable, it has an amazing variety of sites to see and is clean, neat and authentic.
