  • They have so much to offer! Summer hours and outdoor concerts, rotating & interesting exhibits and the solar system programs. So grateful to live nearby this gem!
  • Lovely courtyard, river views at the entrance and beautiful art. Check out the events available dedicated to the theme of exhibits. I went to a Frida themed paint night and it did not disappoint!
  • Magnificent building and art, hands-on workshops, sweet little gift shop... We also enjoyed a picnic on the grassy hill and open field in front of it.
  • This is a really nice museum with an incredible location. Unfortunately when we went many of the highlights including the River display and the planetarium we're closed. Hope to return one day when those are back.
  • Its great: Become a member and it pays for itself in 2 visits. Planetarium is great for the entire family and the exhibits keep changing all the time.
