  • We have always took our grands here since they were babies. They really enjoy seeing the animals and getting to just go through the place without having to hold our hands. It’s always fun.  more »

  • A great place to go on field trips, and I love seeing new exhibits every time I go! Overall, it really is a great place.
  • 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.
