  • Although geared more toward little children, it's still interesting and educational for older children.

  • Something for everyone. Great for homeschool groups. The 1st floor has Natural History and the 2nd floor is hands on science for kids. Several tables and chairs for moms to rest and take care of...

  • Absolutely beautiful displays, kids all ages would enjoy. My husband and I took our 2 year old for the first time today and he had an amazing time. The first floor is more museum like with some super exciting fossils and displays. The second floor is a fun learning experience, they have all kinds of "exhibits" where they teach you all kinds of things from playing with colors and sounds, to some basic science. They also have a small reptile section with live snakes, lizards, and even some spiders. They have a play section with all kinds of wonderful toys and games. We had the most amazing time. Admission for adults is $10 and I believe for kids is $9 and seniors is $8. We will definitely be coming back!! (We loved it so much that we got an annual family membership for $95 and it's good year round.) They also have other membership options for individuals, seniors, and big families.
  • Wow! Mayborn Museum is SO extraordinary! We all loved being here so much!! Thank you so much for creating so many unique areas to discover!! Great fun for ALL ages, especially little ones!!! Thank you for all the workers and volunteers who are constantly picking up, providing sanitizing stations and resetting the stage for all new explorers to enjoy. We loved being here, it’s SO amazing!
