  • My 3 year old son loved this! We originally came to the Museum to see the bones of the animals that lived during the ice age like the Mammoth and Giant Sloth. My son enjoyed seeing all the focsils and stuffed animals! Will definitely go again!
  • Amazing museum. We need to support it. Can't have it shut down again
  • If you've never been, make a trip of it to go. Well worth it for the young or old.
