This museum was a delightful surprise! We thought it was just the first floor, but there is a second floor with great exhibits about local Native American history and local people who were involved in various wars. The first floor has a great section on mastodons and fossils in general and is more child oriented. The earthquake simulator is definitely for kids and you build with blocks and then shake it to see what happens. The upstairs sections have a great collection of war memorabilia, a lot of pots and artifacts from the native civilization, and a cute version of old time shops that you can walk through and see old items. We spent about two hours there and it was a great time!

Small but free. I was waiting on my wife doing research at the connected University library, so it was convenient too. Free parking in the lot outside for museum users too. Worth taking in if you're in the area.

Nice, unexpected find. While not huge, this was great experience. The museum is free, though donations are accepted. Several exhibits were hands on and interactive. Not a full day, but will easily fill a few hours, especially if you use the tinker lab. Enjoyed the photos and recreated main street. Good history
