The Amerind Museum
Lindenmeier Fossil Site in Northern Colorado, a place we visited a few years ago when we lived in Fort Collins.
I did have to ask what Amerind stands for, but was pretty sure I already knew the answer. It wasn't advertised anywhere, but the staff member said it's a combination of American and Indian, so American+Indian=Amerind. Works for me. I just wonder how long it will be until they change it to the NatAmeric Museum.
Overall, the it was fun wandering among the artifacts, and seeing the paintings in the art museum next door, but I would say it's a bit overpriced if you don't have the Book of Fun or other discount on admission.
