  • Preserved animals in created habitats gives the viewer a feel of being in the natural habitat. There are Specimen of animal bones from long ago. There are even a few live snakes. Wonderful museum!  more »

  • No matter how many times I visit I just love seeing everything. It's great for kids and has a bug room for them where they can do activities. My family enjoys getting the scavenger hunt paper and trying to find everything.
  • My kids love all the interactive displays, especially the bug room. Lots of interesting dioramas and Exhibits. Exhibitions include live bees, reptiles, mammal skulls, archaeology, explore evolution, fossils (including a T-Rex) and Bug Town. It also has a fully intact Mosasaurs fossil on display.
  • Not typically a fan of Natural History Museums, but this one was unexpectedly fun. They had cool little activities to engage kids at most of the displays. No pressure on the donation if you are unable to ante up. But we kicked in because, well that's how museums work.
  • Nice little museum. Kids really enjoyed watching the bees.
  • Took my kids to this museum. My four-year-old is in his "LOVES DINOSAURS" phase and both he and my almost seven-year-old really enjoyed the museum. There are an extensive amount of exhibits for the relatively small area occupied. We plan on going back soon.
