Petrified Wood Museum: Pick Your Own

We visited with Noah who was very nice and helpful. We filled two 5 gallon buckets of petrified wood for $30 per bucket. He gave us some polished wood. His grandfather started the business and he is continuing it. We would definitely go back.

Petrified Wood Museum

This place is awesome. For $30 you can fill a five gallon bucket (bring your own bucket) with petrified wood! The original museum was started in the 1940s by the current owner's grandfather (his father ran it until his death a month ago). The current owner is really nice, and if you talk to him about the wood and digging and how to polish the wood, he may cut and polish one of the pieces you've picked. There are huge piles of petrified wood of all sizes, and basically you just roam around and pick whatever you want.
