  • I took my four kids to this museum. They loved it. They also have a walking path outside, they really enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend this museum. We didn't go to the Children's Museum that i...  more »
  • This museum has some neat features-the bird watching plate glass window with binoculars, the dinosaur game room, a pre-school room (that's very small) for kids under 5, and a lot of information. But, ...  more »
  • This place was smaller that it appeared from the outside. Very little to do or look at. Prices are low which is equal to the quality of the museum.  more »

  • There are not many things to do in Ms but this place is amazing for both kids and adults! I went with my husband and we both really enjoyed it. Highly recommend. It's very big and spacious. Outside playgrounds and grills. The museum is very nice and spacious too. Even has a movie theater in it. And a long walking trail. Love love loved it! Would definitely go back again. Price is reasonable.
  • The museum is a great place for nature study, hiking, viewing fish, turtles, birds, alligators, and learning about local wildlife. The traveling Dino exhibit leaves much to be desired. But, the other traveling exhibits they've had in the past have been great. Plus, you can beat the price, especially when you purchase a season pass!
  • Love the displays of old bones and stuffed animals of Mississippi. We love on school trips how the kids get to interact with live animals safely. My children always have a blast and being able to buy edible bugs is a big draw for the boys.
  • My experience was awful. We called and asked if it was entertaining and they said it was; in all actuality, all the children did was walk around and do nothing. It reeked of stench in the outdoors area. It was noticeable that they didn't care. The only part the children enjoyed was the playground, but they were there to learn. It would be a different story if they were there to play though. If I could give 0 stars, I would.
  • Nice museum with a narrow focus on Mississippi's wildlife. Needs some updating and cleaning but definitely worth the cost of admission and a really great value overall.
