Kids really enjoyed the museum. Lots of hands on activities. Enjoyed the nature trail as well. Great experience for our children to learn about the history of their own town and animals from all over.

I love to go to the museum and you never get tired of seeing the animals and enjoying nature. I took my children when they were little and now I am taking my grandchildren.

What a fantastic afternoon we had at the museum. We enjoyed the interesting exhibits & "hands-on" areas. The playroom is a wonderful place to take your children. We plan to return to visit the planetarium.

I think it is a great place since I volunteer there! Have done so for 25 years. They also have a children museum and two other places.

We attended the butterfly exhibit and it was a lot of fun while learning. The hall of animals is always fascinating to the smaller ones in your group.
