  • My review is on the museum and forestry/wildlife center. This is not much of a history museum and not much of a wildlife center. Both are very, very small. The limited wildlife are in small pen areas. There is a nice play area for small children. I would not come here unless you are with small kids. They may have fun.
  • A completely charming kids discovery museum. The outdoor areas were really well done. They liked the indoor exhibits as well. There is a snack cafe and the proximity to the sundial bridge is great.
