  • I've driven by the place a hundred times and never visited. Brought my little guy to see Wally the stegosaurus and had a great time. For a small museum, they have an aerospace exhibit (with paper rockets to build and launch), mummies, a STEM area and miniatures built by a local sculptor. Very cool and close to home.
  • I love it. They had plenty to look around that. Many interactive kinds of exhibits fun for kids and adults. There was really cpnvient hours. There was a wide variety of exhibits too. No food there though, but it's smack dab in the middle of a small little town, so you could find something to eat easily.
  • We get a membership so that we can come on rainy days and there's always something new that stands out to us as well as many wonderful interactive activities for the kids. Their favorite is the small aquarium downstairs, though it has barely changed since I was a kid. Many rooms are the same as they have been for decades but they also have fascinating new displays coming through all the time. Love going to shows in the theater with the kids, a great intro to the stage.
  • Great place and it was not too big and not too small. My husband, kids and I loved it!
  • Love it! Hope they don't sell any art on display. I love having a cool way to share my childhood with my son.
