ETSU's Natural History Museum and Gray's Fossil Site

We started off our adventure here at the Fossil Dig site and our guide told us how the site came to be, how the get the fossils out of the site and what they have found there. Then we were brought into the museum where we were given a guided tour of the various fossils and the areas where they examine the fossils. The downstairs of the museum in geared toward children and has lots of hands-on activities and gorgeous murals. We had a wonderful time here and highly recommend it. The only part of the museum we did not like was the traveling exhibit, Rainforest Adventure, which was simplistic, not very well executed. I do not recommend you getting tickets for this.
