I think any kid under 8 would enjoy this museum. Several interactive exhibits and my kids liked unearthing the bones. Older kids would probably appreciate the main exhibit more. Easy parking and convenient location.More

Nice small museum well worth a visit. Lots of nice displays and an educated staff. Parking is,a challenge probably dye to the proximity to the court house.

Great way to introduce museums to youngsters. It is packed with information without being so big that kids would lose interest. Hands-on play is fun and well arranged. Be sure to get to the basement where you can watch paleontologists cleaning dinosaur bones; they had...More

There is no admission price, as it is a free museum. They do have donation boxes though if you want to make a donation.
