  • Loved it!! The botanical garden is beautiful and the staff of very friendly.
  • 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.
  • Great place to spend the day with your family and wander
  • This is a great place to better understand the history of life on the prairie. It's especially nice in the summer because of the arboretum and the nature walk both of which are expansive!
  • This is a great small town cultural location. The exhibits have been well maintained with many recent updates. Donations accepted but no admission. It's a great place for families.
