  • This is a great gem! I didn't expect much as this is a small town and the building looked small from the outside. But, I was oh so wrong! There is PLENTY to do, even without the special events, programs, etc. ALL the staff is friendly and seem to really enjoy children! The camps are fun! The interactive exhibits are great. My 1 and 5 year old enjoy it all. They have one section that changes every time I've gone, so it's nice that there is always something new. The garden and botanical gardens are fun to explore, pretty and well maintained.
  • An amazing place! Very beautiful. Trails are wonderful.
  • The prairie trail is excellent. 5 miles of prairie flowers, woods, and wildlife. A hidden gem.
  • My experience was amazing! It was great for my kids to learn about the local history in a fun and welcoming way! I cannot wait to take pictures in the spring of the trails and botancial garden! For currently, I am excited for the new schedule of events this January!
  • I went thinking my kids would like it and they loved it and I ended up like it as well it's a great place with good people
