One room with a few stuffed animals and a couple interesting facts. Have been to much better children's museums in Georgia. Bummer! State of Georgia Museum of Natural History deserves better representation.

A pretty good place to occupy a fidgety toddler for an hour or so, but this is more of a working museum with no real public exhibitions worth seeing. UGA deserves an actual museum of natural history!

This place is sensational. If you're local and haven't been, it's time. Seeing the blue morpho butterflies alone are worth the trip.

This is not a museum, its a room within a college building with stuffed animals - look elsewhere.
