  • Took our granddaughters to this museum, but we really enjoyed it too. Very affordable entry fee, great learning experience, girls got to hold a bug. They loved it.
  • Got to look at a lot of cool animals and bugs! Learned a lot about different beetles, moths, butterflies, praying mantis, etc.! So much fun, I would definitely check it out! It's also part of a traveling market, so I suggest walking around and looking at the different art pieces after!
