    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.
