When our girls were young, regular trips to the RMSC were the rule. Long since grown up along with their children, it’s been a while since we visited the museum.

So, driving down East Avenue recently, we decided to swing in to see what we could learn about the Regional Green Infrastructure Showcase. It didn’t take long and it was a fun and educational stop on a beautiful afternoon. Essentially, a living laboratory built around the parking lot and driveways south of the main museum, the design shows how water quality can be improved storm water better utilized.

In just a few minutes, you’ll see:

Rain gardens and bio-retention islands
Stormwater tree plantings
Monitoring and sampling points
An educational learning pavilion
Educational art glass panels
Permeable Pavements
Downspout disconnects, and
Rain barrels and treadle pumps

Markers throughout the exhibits explain features in greater detail. And, if you have limited time, you can do this quickly without entering the museum.

We have many great science museums near home that we visit frequently, so I didn't expect too much when walking into this relatively small museum, It turned out to be a great little museum full of interesting things to see for all ages! We ended up spending over 3 hours there and there still would have been more to see,
There are typical science center things for kids (and adults) as well as lot of interesting local history on display. There as beautiful small gardens around on the outside. The place is not too crowded you get to explore at your own pace,

My husband and I enjoy history, we learned a lot about the Underground Railroad here. Lots of local history. It was very enjoyable. Add on the planetarium, and you have a good 2-4 hours of enjoyment.
