  • Amazing museum even when they don't have one of their special events going on. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the Reptile Festival. Great group of workers there, each are super friendly. One of Virginia's gems, a must see!
  • We had so much fun! It was a rainy day and we had to occupy an 8 and 9 year old. Walking through and looking at all the fossils was a blast. All the interactive and hands-on exhibits really kept the girls entertained. This was an informative trip with very well thought-out exhibits.
  • For years I've wanted to visit this place, so I made a day trip of it. How wonderful! I loved the dinosaur exhibit at the time. The staff was also great and very enthusiastic. I enjoyed being able to navigate the place on my own. I know you'll enjoy it.
  • This was my first visit but it will not be my last. The staff are super nice and the museum itself was amazing! I love the hands-on experience as well as the many learning tools.
  • Absolutely Loved this place! Honestly did not know we had something this nice and fun for all ages close to us! Will return highly recommend anyone to visit 😀
