  • My family and I have for the past 2 years we have attended the Rock Festival, it is so much fun! The planetarium show and the games they have are nice and fun. We enjoy the museum.
  • Lots of educational and fun activities for children and adults. We went during Rock Fest and enjoyed the vendors and extra rock/ mineral-related activities.
  • Great place. Recommend if you live within a few hours and I say it's worth spending a couple hours to break up your trip along I-75. Great exhibits for all ages.
  • My kids had a really good time, the children's play room was great with a lot of interactive stations. Don't miss panning for "gems" and fossils. There aren't a huge number of exhibits but it's a really good size to spend a few hours in.
  • We took our fourth grade kids here on a field trip, and it was amazing! They loved every bit of it, and so did I!
