Petrified Creatures Museum
I recommend the Petrified Creatures Museum of Natural History, Richland Springs. It was fun fun fun last year when I visited. They are open memorial day to Labor Day. We learned about fossils and prehistoric life that roamed the earth 300 million years ago! Husband, kida and l dug for fossils and found a lot. The gift shop had tons of dinosaur stuff, rocks minerals and exotic stuff from around the world. Preserved butterflies, polished gems etc. The staff are friendly and helpful.
