    We went to see the bug exhibit thought it was included in the general admission. But we were wrong cost us another $8 each for a exhibit that was not worth near that. Next time we will check or not go...  more »

    I wish they had more in their exhibits since you can be in and out of the museum and have seen all of the exhibits in their entirety in less than 2 hours. They have good programs for the kids and fun family activities. Museum membership is still a bargain if you travel. I've used my IMAS museum membership to get into museums in San Antonio, Houston and Denver for free. Overall a pleasant experience.

    The price is a little much for the size and experience. However they do have a student discount which is appreciated. It seems to be geared towards children which I did not know. So it would be great for young families. This museum offers a diverse experience for children as they have hands-on science programs, small creatures, fun art, a play area, and outdoor sculptures.

    Fun kids exhibit and awesome playground, gift shop, and art exhibit. The museum has scheduled, fun classes for the kids. Discounts offered here for various circumstances.

    Quiet and friendly staff. Always enjoying passing by here, especially because my daughter loves the "wooden castle" that has little "secret passages"

    Nice place but they need to improve. Front counter personnel need to improve their personal skills. Everyone else was wonderful.
