  • Great little museum! So much for kids to do and not so big that they get tired. Wonderful exhibits all about the local habitats.
  • An interesting museum covering the local area. Great interactive displays especially for children. I personally found it to be very enlightening.
  • Great little museum if you have half an hour to spare and the entry fee of $3 for ages 12+ is very cheap. Nice volunteers but a very grumpy janitor.
  • A great museum with high quality exhibits and friendly, very well informed, staff!
  • Fun little stop. Beautiful views of the bay, nice walking trail. Can't beat the price.
