Bison burgers mmmm must try these! This is a great place to spend a few hours. We ate outside on the patio, wandered grasslands and enjoyed an engaging speaker. The big stuffed bison is very realistic lol.

There is a sence of tranquillity when you walk the trails, but I have never liked the admission price. I understand there are galleries as well, but I just like the trails. Sometimes there are trails closed, but they do not tell you that when...More
