Fick Fossil and History Museum

This museum was surprisingly good. They have an extensive collection from a local artist who used shark teeth, other found animal remains, and fossils to make intricate paintings. When we visited, the collection on display featured the artist's depictions of local natural wonders, patriotic symbols and floral still lifes among other things.
