  • Very nice looking Center, they have alot of information for children. Many interactive educational hands on activities and exhibits for kids I was not expecting. My children were also excited to see the live turtles and snakes!! Loved the sensory garden they have right outside. So cute!!
  • I went there with my 4 young kids. They had a blast! We spent a little over an hour inside the museum and then walked on the trail. After the trail was completed, my 5 year old turned to me and asked if we could go back inside! It's definitely a fun family activity, even nana was having a blast! There is even a large playground across the way. The only downside was the mosquitoes were attacking on the trail... just bring some Off with you!
