  • The museum is best if you are visiting for a special exhibit or with a group. We took our 2 year old and our 6 year old niece. They liked the interactive parts and some of the permanent displays.

  • Excellent museum, you are greyed by gus the 100 year o?d turtle and continue with some great exibits. Lots of themes throughout the year !
  • A great place to take your kids. lots of fun stuff to see. A great rainy day activity.

  • We have had annual passes for the past 3 years and great place to bring the kids. New sections keep our children's attention. However, it is a small museum and with the kids getting older, it is harder to get them excited to visit when the traveling exhibits are not interesting to them.
