We stopped by to kill time before checking into our hotel. It was super quiet. We did a scavenger hunt and played games about each climate zone. The IMAX was probably a good show but we were so exhausted from traveling we got a 45 minute nap. There isn't a ton to do for Tweens. There was a little kid... More

This is a nice museum with a nice variety of animals and activities for kids of all ages. It's especially convenient during cold winter months when you feel 'cooped up' inside. Plenty of room to walk and kids to run - a concession stand/deli and a couple of age appropriate play areas. It is definitely worth the trip!

We took our family of five and were out in an hour. There wasn't much to do. You get more bang for your buck at the Museum of Nature and Science.

Very nice little wildlife museum. Nice place for kids. The scavenger hunt was a good way to take up an hour or so. Probably good for smaller children.

This is a great place to take the kids to. You can walk thru the exhibits and feel like you are at some very far away exotic place seeing wildlife in their natural habitat. It is appropriate for all ages. The price of an annual pass is very affordable so you can visit often as they change exhibits. They have... More

This is more than a wildlife experience. Young children have the opportunity for many hands on experiences that will help them understand how the world around them works. So, there are not only exhibits, but there are interactive activities that keep children away from their ipods and TVs. Attention spans of any children in your group will determine how much... More

Want to feel like you've been far far away on a rainy day, or want to impress visitors, or engage fussy or bored kids? Then, come on a grand tour of the world's biomes and animals and far away places. While you are doing that you can see movies, art, special limited-time science exhibits from museums around the country, see... More

We went with another family and there were four adults and three children. The three and four year old enjoyed the museum. There were a few interactive exhibits that were a big hit. The kids corner was also fun. My son was a little apprehensive about the animals that made noise but it wasn't overwhelming. The café was excellent! We... More
