  • I love going here. I enjoy it everytime I go there because I get to learn new things there. It is a very wonderful place. 
  • Great for kids & adults. You can spend several hours and see everything. If you want to plan a fun 2-3 day weekend then visit here, the zoo, and the Children's Museum.

  • I've been visiting this museum all my life and I've always loved it! The permanent exhibits are beautiful and informative enough on their own but they also have temporary exhibits that are always fascinating. There are several interactive exhibits. A new projection dome was added recently for planetarium shows and the like. And the imax is wonderful: the glasses fit over prescription well enough and there is a concessions stand. I can't wait to see the mechanical circus display is finished being repaired~!
  • Very interesting experience. Eclectic mix of items. Good place to spend 2-4 hours (or longer if do one of the movies). The mock-up of the first Piggly Wiggly is really cool.
  • Great natural history museum. So many books and crannies, there is always something you have overlooked.
  • My wife disliked this place. I thought it was okay. We went during the anniversary of the Piggly Wiggly so they had a store replica of the first one ever. The set up is supposed to take you on a trip through history, but the museum doesn't really tell you where to start. Ticket prices were fair to what was offered. For adults, it was $12.75.
  • Loved it had so many things to do and their adding on
