  • Went here for their holiday Christmas tree set up and wow! It exceeded my expectations. Very beautiful and educational. They had so many displays with information about Christmas traditions around the world. I loved reading them and learning about other cultures. The price to enter and view this display was insanely cheap and we got to see the entire museum and mansion. The mansion is gorgeous and there are bathrooms and elevators readily available. I highly recommend this Christmas tree event. They do it every year and it's really great
  • I took my pre-k aged son there during one of their Special Events related to outer space. This was an amazing experience for both my son and I as the Museum had multiple craft activities available that appealed to a variety of different types of children and age groups. There were ample supplies for rambunctious children and extremely friendly and patient staff whom were able to get to a child’s level of understanding and mark the learning experience fun and worthwhile. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to introduce science, engineering, mathematics, or other studies to their children in a fun and imaginative way.
