  • Impressive assortment of taxidermied mammals, reptiles, and birds on the main hall. A separate section features interactive science experiments fun for kids and adults. The second floor of their main hall features a varied collection of cultural pieces.
  • This museum is free for local residents and moderately priced for anyone from out of town. Interesting exhibits, fun gift shop, and a planetarium at certain times of the year. There are special programs in the summer that are geared for children and a play space out back but is often filled with interesting exhibits or animals.
  • Great little museum with eclectic collection. New exhibits just unveiled. Recommended although quite small.
  • Great place to spend some one on one time with my son. We both enjoyed it very much.
  • The kids loved it here. The planetarium was great. There were so many exhibits and things to check out, they could have spent...a whole day here.
