  • This is our new favorite museum and definitely worth the drive from Charlotte. We watched the planetarium show and looked through the dioramas and interactive educational exhibits with our boys (ages 6 and 8) and practically had the place to ourselves on a weekday afternoon. Their favorite part was the extensive collection of natural artifacts like bird eggs and bones, animal jaws and furs, and rock and mineral samples. The staff was wonderful. Seriously the best we've encountered anywhere. They were knowledgeable and helpful, and spoke well with the kids, engaging with them in a way strangers almost never accomplish.
  • Always visited once a year when I was growing up, it's a great place to go with your family for a day trip. My absolute favorite is the planetarium! Makes learning fun.
  • Very cool if you like to learn about animals and their natural habitats. Our 5 year old loves it here and there is a cute play area for younger children.
  • An amazing collection of African animals and a good hand on natural history exhibit. Friendly staff and a nice gift shop. Add a nice art exhibit and planetarium.
  • Wonderful place in York County, SC. This is a museum which focuses on wildlife, particularly stuffed specimens. For me, the highlight of the tour was the Naturalist Center, which has interactive exhibits as well as very impressive specimens, including: polar bear, giraffe, giant land sloth. Was not able to use the planetarium, but will definitely take advantage of in the future. Also two very nice ares for young children to play.
