I was told that everything from Horner Museum, which used to be under Gill Coliseum @ OSU. I had spent a LOT of hours there during summer school while my parents worked on teaching credentials. I was VERY disappointed to see about 1/4 of the rock exhibit under black lights, none of the stuffed animals and limited display of WW1 artifacts. Benton County Museum has a nice interpretive pottery collection some lady spent years making. I sure didn't think it was worth the $5 suggested donation.
