  • At $9 per adult and $8 per child and no parking and tiny, it only would merit one visit ever. Take your kids to see the live reptiles and other animals they have. It is a small museum. Very little to ...  more »

  • This was a very cute little museum. I took my 3.5 yr old and she had so much fun. It was inexpensive and we were able to do the entire building in under 2 hours. Nice for a quick, fun and educational day trip.
  • It was a nice day trip. 3 floors of stuff to see but over all was a small exhibit. The sci some is extra and each additional movie is $4.00. although the movies is informative to some (I knew this stuff already) the movie was short and dark. I kept want to adjust the brightness level like you do on your TV when the picture is dark. The gentleman who hosted the movie was great. Oh and due to letting light in once your in the movie and you leave it to say....go to the bathroom... you're not allowed back in. So do that stuff before you go it.
  • We are members here now for the second year. We live close by and my daughter loves coming here. It's small but she doesn't get bored and they have lots of special events.
  • I enjoyed it. The upstairs art gallery was kind of a ripoff though. They had a small live animal section which was the best thing ever! They also have a small gift shop, which if you go you need to leave with a celestial buddy. They had cool science things, like a tornado machine, and it was fun to walk around and see the things. They also have toys in a couple different areas so if you're coming with young kids there'll be something to occupy them if they get bored.
  • I came here as a kid and always loved it. It's a privilege to be able to bring my daughter here as well to watch her learn.
