Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum

On Friday afternoon, I took the kids to the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum for the first time.  We went with some friends, and it was a really good time.

The museum was much bigger than I anticipated, and it had some pretty neat exhibits.  There was an entire dinosaur fossil hall, which I was not expecting to find in Canyon, Texas.  I also particularly liked this huge recreation of the lighthouse rock formation in the Palo Duro Canyon.  I only got a picture of a corner of it.  The entire thing was probably 5 to 6 times larger.


The boys are holding on tightly to their scavenger hunt stamp cards.  We completed the museum hunt, and we got free PPHM water bottles as a prize.


In this picture, Connor is trying hard to figure out why anyone would ever want to ride side saddle.  He said, "Half of this saddle is missing."  Oh, history.  What fun!
