  • This museum has a large collection with a good variety of things to see. It’s good for adults and kids. Plan about 2 to 3 hours for your trip. It’s worth seeing.

  • This is one of the best stops we make when traveling across the country. The staff is wonderful, the exhibits are great! We love all the rattlesnakes. Also the gift shop is reasonable!
  • We were traveling through and wanted to stop to let our one year old stretch his legs. We were introduced by the sweetest lady at the front desk and she was very informative. It ended up being such a fun pit stop we spent about an hour and a half here. There's live snakes, frogs, turtles, and fish, which was a nice surprise. The exhibits are placed where he's not tempted to touch anything he's not supposed to, which is really nice. He spent a lot of time running around the Dinosaur Diorama and loved the dinosaur noises. The animatronic T-Rex was pretty cool. He was a little wary of it. 😄 There's also a kids' play and rest area with benches part way through, and a kids' "discovery room" with a lot of different activities at the end I believe. Highly recommend stopping to stretch your legs and check this place out!
