Visitor Tips and News About Fetuses in Jars - Kingman Museum
My wife and I stopped on our way from Waterford to Colorado Springs. We found the fetuses to be pretty entertaining (from 1939) as well as the fairly sizable collection of stuffed animals and skulls. The staff was very friendly and it seemed as if they don't get very many visitors. The planetarium puts on a decent show, although it is rather small. Overall I'd give it a 3/5 on the entertainment scale.[Ryan Haag, 08/12/2013]
Call for 1/2 price day. Glad we only paid $2.50 Not too much to see here. The fetuses are interesting and apparently fairly rare. Exhibits are very dated. Staff is very helpful and friendly. They do have a planetarium. Didn't stay for show. Walked grounds of surrounding arboretum. Nice for a picnic.[jglaze, 06/09/2013]
Human fetuses in jars, they've been there since I was a kid. A little creepy but cool.[steve corwin, 07/07/2006]
