  • Stumbled across this about 2 years ago and continue to be impressed. It's an amazing place for kids since so much of it they're allowed to touch. It's a little bit of everything from rocks to animals to fossils and even a play area. Great for toddlers through teens because they can play or read in detail info depending on age level. Make sure to take advantage of the wooden drawers throughout the building as they're full of other items you can check out but there's just not enough shelf/table space for it all
  • Pretty good for its size, lots of information. Although, it was absolutely freezing and kinda dim.. Bring a light coat/ hoodie.
  • Some cool stuff. Wish there was a larger variety!
  • If you have children this is an excellent location to bring them. They have a great mix of hands on activity and exhibits that are well worth the admission price not to mention specialized events like Tinker time with storytime and crafts and exhibits like the Nano-Imagine exhibit that is coming December 21st-January 5th! Adults are just $5 and children are $3.
