Exhibits are well done. I particularly enjoyed the beaver exhibits, and the interactive animal tracks animation. The animal tracks identification round table uses lights and audio describing the tracks of each animal one at a time. When the audio begins, n beautiful tracks appear in what looks like sand (but is not). They disappear upon conclusion of the description. There... More

This place has lots of interesting artifacts, fish tanks, wildlife exhibits, a little something for everyone. My grandsons love going there over and over again, plus the paved trail outside along the river is nice and mostly level, very accessible.

This was a great place to visit. It also sits right next to the river. It has a lot of great stuff for kids to see, but also adults. It would make a great school field trip for 8-10 year olds.

This is a really fun Nature Center to see. There is a minimal fee to get in, but it is definitely worth it. Restrooms are available on the inside once you pay. There is plenty to see for kids and adults. There is a wildlife viewing area, a 7000 gallon aquarium, animal exhibits, cultural exhibits, over 1200 artifacts, a beautiful... More

We are local so we go several times a year. Friday's at 10:30am they have a Fish Feeding Frenzie and little ones can help cut worms and watch the fish being fed. It's a neat experience. They have a few different displays and some change. They have a scavenger hunt with different items each month and I seem to see... More

Nature and history are both featured. Building is rather new and sits right on the river, which is nice to see.

We took a picnic and ate there outside. We had never been there, so was surprised how nice it was....Will go again soon and spend more time with exhibits.

This is a beautiful building, right on the river's edge and next to a walking trail. Has excellent exhibits on habit and also on the history of the area. Lots for both kids and adults to explore.

It was a bit busy when we came with kid's field trips. Many displays, large aquarium, other items from the past. Very friendly employees who will answer questions.
