  • LOVE this place for the education they provide! The staff are always very kind and patient with kids. My kids are always engaged in cool projects and come out with new knowledge.
  • Wow! We visited for the first time during a "Second Saturday" event which hosted a llama, parrots, and therapy dogs. The permanent exhibits were great and loved by all my children, ages 4, 9 and 11. The crowd size was just right... enough other children for interaction but not so many to feel crowded. And it's all FREE! We will be back.
  • We were there for an evening Eagle Scout ceremony. Very nice property. Very well maintained. Look forward to going back!
  • Remarkably well-done exhibits. I came with my daughter's scouts group but got through my engrossed myself.
  • Great event space! Meetings, events, parties and more. Beautiful venue. Very accommodating space. We used the 'coffee service' which was Great! Highly recommend for your event.
