  • The Bean Museum has an incredible collection of animals, all displayed beautifully, with details on each. Very kid-friendly, and free.  more »
  • Updated exhibits and renovated building interiors are great! Free! A nice hour or two stroll through the exhibits with kids is good. Watching the exhibits come together was a nice touch for our older ...  more »

  • Warning! If you're looking for an exhibit about Beans, you will be sorely disappointed! All this place has is incredibly preserved animals in exciting positions and habitats. I didn't see a single bean, although all the families and couples didn't seem to mind the lack; they looked like they loved seeing the animals and had fun in the small play place. I guess I can't be too upset, considering it was free. P. S. Watch out for the sinks, they're incredibly splashy!!
  • Love this museum. It is great for all ages.. They have different sections with animals from different places. They also have scheduled live animal shows. There is a theater where you can learn about some of the animals you will see. It is very clean and extremely well maintained.. Right now they are putting in a large mural upstairs that looks amazing so far. Did I mention its free!! They do have a gift shop there that has lots of fun stuff books toys cutesy gift shop stuff.
  • A lot of the displays are kid friendly, which is nice if the whole family is going. There is great artwork and taxidermy. A wide variety of animals and environments. The live animal shows are especially fun.
  • Great place to take the kids. Free museum, free parking. They love exploring and looking for new animals. There is also a play area for when they get bored of the wildlife. Fairly large selection of exhibits and animals to see as well.
  • I went here as a kid to draw the animals, and when I went back today I was blown away by how many animals there were. We had an easy time parking and it wasn't too crowded at all. Nice staff and great atmosphere, plus the kids loved it.
