  • Painting is about it. Probably the worst museum I have ever been to. Boring don’t waste your time or money  more »
  • Glad we went on a free day, nothing I'd want to pay for. Some of it was interesting but could be better. The kid part looked kind of fun.  more »
  • Not only was the museum a blast, the people working add so much value! Telling you stories, showing you the theater. It was worth every penny and I would have paid more! The train station deal is part...  more »

  • I have always been impressed with the quality of our museum. I want to publicly thank Tom Lonnberg, Curator of History, for his presentation of the history of Evansville hotels. He entertained, informed and kept the attention of a diverse group of individuals ranging in age from 23 to 81. A job well done and greatly appreciated.
  • An excellent museum! My wife and I were in town from Louisville and enjoyed spending about 3 hours in this museum. Everything from Science to Arts, Crafts and a small model town inside. We weren't expecting the museum to be as nice and well done as it was. I particularly enjoyed reading about Evansville's contribution to World War II through manufacturing.
  • Grew up with the museum, and got see the train coming down south lain DRIVE, tile by by tile. My Dad valinterd on the train for quite some time on the train! I salute Dad to day FOR HISTORY OF BRAVERY HE SHOWED !
  • The $12 fee seemed excessive for the number of broken displays. The planetary movie was amusing but the inclusion of Pluto as a planet made me wonder how old it was. The art exhibits were nice, better than the science part.
  • Really enjoyed the exhibits, the interactive science stations and some wonderful historical and art pieces!
