Spend some time and read the information. Good activities for children. It has some rare fossils. We easily spent an hour there. Free and a nice walk through campus. Winter hours 12 to 3pm.

Don't want to oversell this museum -- it's just a few rooms -- but if you're into paleo stuff, you'll probably find a lot of great stuff in this small space. If you stay at the Hilton Garden Inn and take a walk across campus,...More
