If you are into African animals or star gazing this is a great place to visit. I take my cub scouts there and they love it. Low cost and wide spaces so you never feel crowded.

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.

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.

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.
