  • The renovations they've made to the museum itself are so amazing!! The new exhibits they had when I were interactive and fun. I don't think I've felt this way about a museum since I lived in Colorado. Walking through connected me with the history of the region and I loved how there was a metate that you could grind corn with. Hit close to home.
  • Great experience, the kids loved the animals! Only complaint was that the play area didn't have enough for the little kids 1 to 2 years old. Staff was very helpful and nice and the facility was well kept and up to date.
