I have nothing but great things to say about this museum! Things for both adults and kids. Went during the week and it was not crowded at all. Had trains, dinosaurs, minerals/gems, art, music boxes, and American Indian displays

Our grand kids love visiting the museum and delighting in the model trains and the Dinosaurs. The adults often find something extra! The recent Kinetic art exhibit was a fun surprise.

Children under 3 enter free. Also if you are a Bank of America card holder you can take advantage of their museums on us program where the first weekend every month is free for card holders.
