What an amazing museum. This is a true hidden gem. We have been to many science museums that have dinosaur fossils but none of them compare to this one.
A quick stop that is also very educational. The Junior Ranget program is also quick and easy. We spent about a 1/2 hr looking at the museum and walking over to the gas station and school.
Great pitstop. The visitor center has lots of great information about the parkway and the video is definitely worth a watch. Note if you are doing the junior ranger booklet make sure you get the correct one, the one online is not for the parkway.
