  • If your into fly fishing this is a must see! They have just finished redoing many of the exhibit areas and it is well done. Especially enjoyed the section on the presidents that spent their down time fly fishing. You can even see some of their rods and flies. Really cool! Cost is $5 per adult. We spent about 1 1/2 hours looking at the various exhibits and talking with the curators. You will also be greeted by the host lab tippet.
  • Very informative. Although it is on the smaller side (excluding the library), one can expect to be here for ~30 minutes to fully look at everything it has to offer.
