This little museum is terrific for young kids on a rainy afternoon or morning when you need something to do. There is much information about bay fauna flora. There are even two live turtles. Make sure you walk the trail.

Went with three other families on a cloudy day during vacation. The kids loved it all, the playground, the nature walk and scavenger hunt. The person inside was very friendly and got all the kids a clipboard with a scavenger hunt page and a butterfly net. We didn't really catch anything, but the kids (4-5 years old) had a blast... More

About a mile walk from the beach (but they have plenty of parking) and the lovely wooded property Is a nice respit from the sunny beach. Bring the children for an interesting tour inside the historic cottage, then take the nature walk out to the wetlands. Gorgeous views that are hard to find anywhere else in town. Even a small...

We really enjoyed visiting this nature center. My 3 yr old had a great time walking on the little nature trail and playing on the mini playground equipment. They also had some crayons and nature pictures for her to color. I wouldn't necessarily recommend for older kids, but definitely for the younger ones. It's totally free and the staff is... More

Often overlooked by visitors to our town. I reall is a must see. Just off of route 26, it is a great place to walk and see the nature of the wet lands, and understand why it is most important to perserve it.

We stopped here based on the Trip Advisor reviews and enjoyed the short movie about the center. Nice exhibits and the volunteer was very helpful. We also walked out the short trail to the water and enjoyed the native plants, and garden. The top view was the two osprey and their nest. At the end of the walkway is a... More

Based on a review I read on TripAdvisor my sister and I decided to visit the Bethany Beach Nature Center with four young children. The experience was fun and educational. After exploring the nature museum, we took a nature walk along the marked trail. We ate a picnic lunch in the gazebo on the grounds. There is also a small... More

Great indoor space for 3 yrs old and up. They had some animal & insect displays, an interactive computer display with videos, crafts for children, an aquarium with 2 turtles and 2 goldfish, and as we were the only ones there, one-on-one attention from the only worker there. Good place to spend 45 min inside. There's also a very short... More

The walk out to the bay is lovely. The new picnic area is a nice addition. The playground is just right for little ones. The Nature Center is very interesting.
