  • This is an amazing place with so much to learn for all ages. It would be five stars if they could get the air working correctly. It has been a long time that it has been only half working. At least they keep a sign up as a warning. The staff are always amazingly friendly and helpful. I love that they have the play areas as well. The little ones can get some play time while also learning like the big kids.
  • For a small country museum, I was impressed. When I took my son, they had a dinosaur exhibit. Please do not think there were giant fossils or anything else you would expect from a museum in a big city, but it was cute for my 3 year old. They had 2 different dinosaur mazes. This is where you answered questions about dinosaurs to get through the maze successfully. They had 'dinosaur feet' the kids could put on and walk on a memory foam mattress to make tracks. There were lots of small dinosaur toys to play with as well. There is a room that is a permanent fixture that kids can play in. He really liked this room a lot! We spent an hour in there. There are also large taxidermy animals at one end, which were interesting for my little guy. We spend about 3 hours here. Since we have a membership at the Children's Museum, we also got in here for free.
  • free on sundays. traveling exhibit room, which are usually good. several animal and fossil rooms, and a nice planetarium and kids play room.
  • We stop here with our family often and our daughter really enjoys it. You can get access to this museum with a season pass that also gives you access to some other locations.
  • Free the first Sunday of Every month. Lot's of taxidermy. My kids were bored, but hey, it was free!
