This museum is small, but their exhibits are great and the speakers are very knowledgeable. They are great with kids and patiently answer all questions. They help save all sick and injured animals from the local areas.

Just the right size for a first museum visit. The live animals are captivating and the are some hands on things to do with younger kids as well. Located in a park, you can combine the museum visit with outdoor play for a fun afternoon.

There is a turkey vulture outside at the very front, but everything else is inside. It would be a wonderful place to spend a rainy day!
