Nice area

Beautiful area, and a fairly nice but small museum. Is it worth $3 a person? I don't think so. We have a nature center where I'm from like this one, and it's free.

This was an interesting nature center. The "journey through time in Missouri" was an excellent exhibit. The trail along the river is a lovely walk it is 1.6 miles one way. There is a charge for admission to the nature center but the walk is free.

This is a fairly new attraction, I believe, and one well worth the trip. A variety of exhibits, some live, some not so much, are beautifully displayed. Much history of the area is mixed in among educational and interactive displays. They have a wonderful event calendar which includes things like Native American artifact shows to many kinds of nature crafts... More

A great place to take the family, or go for a walk along the river. There is quite a bit to do and see, not only in the nature center - but all around it. Highly recommended!

Last time I was here was Free Museum day, and I thought it was wonderful. There's really cool exhibits and a lot to learn.

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.
