  • Small but pretty interesting artifacts. I love museums and aquariums. One always learns new things after visiting them.

  • This museum has so much cool stuff to see and do. I was amazed at the sheer amount of education and artifacts and everything that they crammed into this building. And the children's area where it has all the interactive stuff is top notch. They had a really cool planetarium. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and hope to return again.
  • Loved it! It's very interesting and has an awesome kids spot. The stairs are piano key that play notes as you walk up and down. Also has a nice outdoor area.
