  • This place is for anyone of any age. Both my mom and my 2.5 year old toddler were loving it! Really cool dinosaur and petrified wood stuff! It was quite small but perfect size for a toddler, in and out in 30-45 minutes.
  • Coming to this Museum was such a super chill experience! You can come here on a day off to walk around and ease your mind. You can come here on a day where you feel bored at home and you will experience the relaxing energy and vibe. Bring your children on a stroll and teach them a few things while you get to learn as well! Feel like chatting with a friend on a cold day invite them to the museum! Definitely a go to spot and highly recommend for everyone!!
