  • This was so much fun!!!! Wear closed toe shoes when hiking the paths though, glad my friends son was on my shoulders when we passed by the snake of questionable coloring! It is a trail, and outside, cant be too careful! BUT IT'S GORGEOUS I will definitely be going back to see more! The dinosaurs are a fun touch for more than just the kids too!
  • Great museum! This needs to be at the top of your Jackson visit list. Very nice facility with friendly employees. Lots of money and attention went into this building. I personally enjoyed the birds and raptor exhibit the best. Make sure to take advantage of the walking trails if the weather allows. Kids and adults will have plenty to look at in this museum.
