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

Our family of five has been to the Remington Nature Center twice, and really enjoyed both of our trips there. This facility doesn't seem to receive the same amount of promotion as some of the other museums/attractions in Saint Joseph, but it's fairly new, quite clean, and great for kids. There are live fish, bees, and birds to observe, as... More

This place is a newer attraction to St. Joseph with a lot to see and do. Great displays throughout the place. Timeline of St. Joseph walk thru is pretty interesting with a lot of locally donated items. Rocks/ Artifacts exhibit shows a lot of different forms of rocks and Indian artifacts found in the area. Nice size aquarium located next... More

My daughter has had a horrible fear of bees. I took her to the nature center to hopefully educate her about these insects. She was able to see a bee hive first hand, and thanks to the knowledgable staff, learn about the importance of bees in nature. Thanks to this visit, my daughter now considers herself a 'bee expert'! This... More

Explore the local history and geography of the area surrounding St. Joseph and along the Missouri River. From the fish in the river (and on display in the huge aquarium with feeding times posted) to the huge Mammoth that greats you at the door! Local native American along with western and trading history can be seen.

My 2 children and I had a GREAT time. I did not know if my 3 year old would be impressed with walking around looking at exhibits. But after being greeted by life size Mammoths resembling "manny and peaches" my fears were quickly put to rest. Very engaging. LOVED it!

This afternoon we had our grandson's fifth birthday party at Remington Nature Center. The staff was wonderful to work with and everyone who attended had a great time. They brought in animal pelts to see how many the children could identify, they played two games with them, let them make a nature craft, and had Remi their woolly mammoth mascot... More

Right on the Missouri River with incredible displays of local items of interest. This is a "gotta see" if passing through Saint Joseph. They have regular programs for children and many artifacts that I could spend hours viewing.
