We took the grandkids here a while back and they really enjoyed it. It was a fun trip and we as adults also enjoyed the experience.

We had our grandson's birthday party here and it was great. Included in the price of the room we rented (which was very reasonable) everyone at the party got to go thru all of the exhibits for no additional charge. There is so much to do and look at that is so interesting, educational, and FUN!!! Loved it!

This is a great place to walk the river front, enjoy nature and get a brief history of the St. Joseph area. Admission is very reasonable. Take the time to visit this community historical asset.

This is a great place to see and learn about natural history in Missouri. It is in a beautiful location on the Missouri River. You learn a lot wandering through without even realizing it, the exhibits are so interesting and fun. You must see to believe.
