  • This is a mixed review. The interior exhibits are very nice and would be fun for most any kids, families, etc. However, walking to the outdoor exhibits the first thing we came to was a badger cage. Th...  more »

  • The wife & I made a mistake, we went to the Mythic Creatures, River Lab, and Shasta Cavern exhibitions first. They are the nearest to where you buy entrance fee and are inside and cool. We then walked...  more »

  • Nice place for family outings. We couldn't explore it fully as it was a really hot day. But we loved it.
  • It is a good ry beautiful place it has a sun beam thing that tells the time of the sun but the floor is 😡 out of glasses on the best ridge that leads to the sunbeam thing
  • Great place to take kids. Has animals and garden. Currently showing an exhibit on mythical animals.
  • Owner Operators beware!!! Receiving manager for the museum is a liar. She will tell you that semis back up into the lane under the overhead sign all the time. Not true!!! You can if you don't mind climbing the curb several times, chewing up your steer tires, bending a tie rod, and/or throwing off your alignment. If you have a longer wheelbase; 260+ inches, you can forget it unless you don't care about your hood or your paint job. I refused and they unloaded me in the street. Some Unigroup trucks refuse loads to this museum.
  • Nice day out. Bring a picnic, food in museum is pricey and more snack style. Take your time don't rush. Read the signs and learn.
