  • One of the best resources for kids in this city. Special learning events related to various sciences, especially anthropology.
  • This place is amazing, I will be back to see the things I missed. Educational and Historical. Highly recommended for as visit.
  • Always a favorite with the kids. Especially upstairs. Learn about your local community. Free on first of the month Sunday's with kids activities after 1pm
  • Kind of small, but the exhibits are good quality. Don't expect to spend more than an hour and a half here though. The nature lab is also a fun little activity for children when it is open.
  • Not much and has had the same thing up for the past 4 yrs
