  • This place is really nice. With the location being right along the bay, the views are stunning. Come here for a casual museum and you'll be fine. Don't expect to come here and find a massive structure that'll take hours to explore, this place will not suit you. Come here to enjoy the surrounding tree, trails, education, interactive displays and friendly staff. Rocky is a delight!
  • Great view of the bay. Cool spot for kids. Lots of good information for adults too.
  • In a beautiful location. It's small, fun for kids.
  • This place is great. My daughter loved it and the observation deck is worth it alone.
  • Great little museum! So much for kids to do and not so big that they get tired. Wonderful exhibits all about the local habitats.
