This museum Never disappoints. Every time I’m in the area with others of all ages, all are shocked at how interesting and fun this gem is. I never spend less than 2 hours. So much to see and learn. more »
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!
