A great "small town" museum which has exhibits on local prehistoric animal life and also the various indigenous inhabitants of the area. This is Indian country!

This museum is fairly small but has nice displays of fossils and dinosaurs. There were also quite a few dinosaur tracks which had been removed from local mines as well as fossilized dinosaur eggs. Entrance fee was $12, parking was free right in front of the museum. We visited on Feb 5th, 2018.

The museum was very interesting, and had many different ways to interact with the displays. Hands on activities, some games, an audio tour available on your phone, and even windows to watch people working on fossils, I'm assuming that happens in weekdays. There is a kids area to enhance their learning while they play. A great place at a great price. $6 for adults, and a family group fee is also available. Easy to get to off Route 6, so take an hour to stretch your legs while on a trip through Price.
