  • Would have rated it a 5. But the exhibits were very busy. They needed a few more rooms downstairs. Very interesting with great artifacts, animals and fossils. The art gallery upstairs was great too.
  • Was nice and quiet. Few people so we had it all to our selves. Great time reading and learning. Watched some videos of woodcarving and ceramics; very nice time.
