  • We like to stop at centers like this and weren't disappointed. The staff was very helpful, there are a lot of hands on displays and my favorite was the video explaining what the "Driftless" area is.....  more

  • Quite a unique and educational location to visit. Filled with amazing historical and important rocks of the area. There is so much to see. They also have a fun Friday Farmer's Market.

  • This was a hidden gem, especially if you have kids that like nature and hands on learning. Short film talks about how this area was not eroded by glaciers, reason for the drift less terminology, and how the land is different and unique to other parts of the world. Hands on exhibits inside and walking trail with activities outside. Staff includes area teachers that have a passion for the area and the topic. Best is it's free. Could spend 1 to 2 hours here.
  • This is a fantastic educational facility! The kids get to catch things in the water and bugs. They can look at what they find under a microscope. There are many options and the staff is quite knowledgeable. We all had fun, parents and kids, including the 15 year old!
