Very small museum with a great history. Staff is wonderful. Museum is free. John Lopez sculptures are great. Be sure to check out his gallery in town. The museum takes 45-60 minutes to tour. Lemmon is great little town.

We happened upon this museum quite by accident after visiting the Petrified Wood Park & Museum. What a nice little surprise. The Schmidt's were so pleasant and were able to answer most of our questions. They provided us with a fun little scavenger hunt as we looked at all the exhibits. Everything was clean, neat and tidy and very nicely displayed. There were some incredible dinosaur bones, fossils, etc... Some very interesting items and nice exhibits here! Well worth stopping to take a look!
