  • Wow! I'm so glad we made this part of our summer road trip. Reasonably priced and very fun! The aquarium had all the fish and animals that are native to the Mississippi River and the gulf coast. We were amazed at all the different types there are. The Ripley's Believe It Or Not exhibit was interactive and informative. I definitely feel we left this museum much smarter than when we arrived.
  • Knowledgeable staff are always willing to help. They always have a great exhibit going on. They even have a place for kids and adults to learn. Without a doubt this is one of the best places to bring the kids on a rainy. And it’s in the good part of town.
  • Pretty cool place. There are aquariums, displays, terrariums, and a lot more. Great information. Real cool trails and views. Not a lot of thugs as I suspected being this close to Jackson. Definitely worth a visit. Plan to return.
  • Great place to visit in Jackson. Very affordable, family of 3 visited for under $20. Plenty of exhibits to see. Kept my 11 year old and myself engaged. They have a small aquarium section with some disc I have never seen before. At the time we visited there was also a Ripley exhibit. There was a section for toddlers that looked really fun. I definitely recommend stopping by.
  • It was amazing. I really enjoyed it. I go and take my children every time i get the chance.
