  • This museum, while relatively small, had a lot of fun exhibits. My son really enjoyed looking at the large whale skeleton, learning about sea life and the creatures that roamed the earth. He was scared of the dinosaurs in the "jungle", but it was really well done!!!
  • This is a great museum. They have the butterfly enclosure and a great museum all about they history of the area. The exhibits are very well done for children and adults.
