Reviewed 2 May 2012

There's not always a lot to see, but the kids (5 and 8) have a great time at this little "museum" and "zoo".

“Natural Science Center recommended”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Very interesting for children and adults. May displays of artifacts, an auditorium with a domed ceiling where they have shows on astronomy. Nice gift shop. Traveling exhibits.

“Loved the animals!”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Went to see the Titanic exhibit, but loved the rest of the exhibits as well. The tigers were very active and amazing. Enjoyed different animals than the zoo.
