This is one of the most beautiful nature centers we have been to. The center it self as so much to offer both young at heart and young. There is a Menandering path outside that travels along the Missouri River. A great place to visit if you are a nature lover and very informative.

went with the grandchildren and I'm not sure who had the better time! We all did!!! I appreciated the fact that there were chairs available for those of us who needed to sit every once in a while.

The wooly mammoth is very impressive; also the aquarium and local wildlife displays. The interactive displays have some fun activities for kids.

Visited the Nature Center with my younger kiddos. The lady at the front told my kids about a scavenger hunt. They had to find 12 yellow sunflowers through out the center, some of them were really difficult to find but the staff was helpful and pointed us in the right direction. We had an awesome time and it is a... More

There are live fish, bees, and birds to observe, as... More
