  • There’s not a lot of history in this place. Has some history in it and it’s free so it was nice to just walk around and see what they had  more »
  • We always enjoy going to the museum. My family is from Canon so it’s always fun to see and hear about history. Very informative  more »
  • Nice little local museum. Several good dinosaur & plant fossil, and mineral exhibits. There are also some local pioneer history exhibits, as well as an exhibit room that changes periodically to offer different themed displays. This room currently has a locally oriented WW I exhibit. Helpful staff offers guided tours of the museum, even for small groups (2 or 3 people). Easily viewed in 30 to 90 minutes.
  • The volunteers are very helpful and knowledgeable. Its a small museum, but large enough to keep a 7 and a 16 year old busy. WITHOUT their phones!
