My almost ten year old daughter and I attended on a Saturday. I had an idea of what to expect from their website and was pleasantly surprised to see it meet and exceed my expectations. My daughter wasn't excited that we were going to a museum, but as soon as she walked in the door, she was enthralled! We spent... More

I took my granddaughters ages 5 and 8 one afternoon. It was a first time visit for all of us. What a surprise! The animal exhibits are fabulous. There were a lot of "ooh's and aah's" and of course picture taking. There is also a play room and the girls played there for at least a couple of hours. They... More

This museum was just big enough for children and teens as well as adults to hold their interest. It had a wonderful collection of animal species.

I was so surprised at the size and number of really cool exhibits in the York County Museum. It was like being in a miniature Natural History Museum. Animals of the area, animals of Africa, A naturalist center where you can get hands-on with fossils and other things. A planetarium with three attractions playing in rotation. A nice gift shop,...

My husband had recently had hip surgery and this was the perfect place to spend a couple of hours. I would think on a hot summer day it would be a great place to take the grandchildren. The African animal display was a pleasant surprise and the taxidermy instruction interesting. We hope to go back when the planetarium is open.

This museum isn't very large, but it has some great things to offer. I visited with a group of children who ranged in age from 2 to 9 years old; they all enjoyed it very much, although my seven year old was scared of the planetarium show. We spent most of our visit in the hands-on “naturalist center,” which holds... More

I took several ladies to the museum this summer and everyone really enjoyed it. It is a small museum with nice displays of local animal species,and African animal exhibit. They show so much more than just the animal. There is a Taxidermy display and a room with lots things that you can touch and explore. I loved the planetarium's galaxy... More
