Fodor's Review

Two blocks from the the intersection of I–15 and Barstow Road, this museum is crowded with exhibits that include American Indian pottery, mammoth bones, and elephant tracks. Worth a look outside are the iron-strap jail, a rare Santa Fe Railroad drover's car, and a 130-year-old log cabin.
