  • This place was fantastic and a five year old. We paid extra for the dino arctic exhibit which she didn't have much interest in. I think that is more geared for bigger kids. The rest of the museum has great exhibits and lots of hands-on learning. We ended up spending several hours here and ended up flying our kite out in the lawn beside the building and exploring the large splash pad right there.
  • Great museum. Just finished a "behind the scenes tour" and learned SO much! We used to have a membership when our kids were little and that filled many a rainy day but haven't gone much since they grew up. My bad. There really are a lot of great programs/tours for adults and I had honestly forgotten how much I love exploring all the exhibits. Highly recommend a visit!
