Fox Cave Museums

They have done a lot of work -- Fox Cave now has a museum that consists of five buildings. Three have great artifacts and historical items, and two buildings are fun things like animatronic dinosaurs and aliens.

Lots of photo ops out front, with everything from the Cowboy Muffler Man to dinosaurs and giant arms. The gift shop is great and the museum is only $5 for adults (military, law enforcement and firefighters are free). Super fun and the man who runs it is hilarious.
