This is a small museum where mostly African animals are displayed. There are educational programs for local schools so I recommend calling before you go to make sure that there are no schools scheduled for the time you want to go. It can become rather crowded with large classes there. There are displays where children can feel the skin of... More

For a "small town" museum, it had a wonderful variety of displays that were well executed and explained

Very dated museum, but what do you expect for a small town. Go on Sundays, it's free. I went once and I felt like I didn't even get my money's worth them. However, children love the place and would have a blast looking at all the taxidermy animals.

We went here last year around the beginning of September, and it was really fun. It's inexpensive to visit, and there were activities that were fun for children and unusual exhibits for adults to see. The people working at the museum were truly nice and added interesting information as we walked around. It's a small place but very nicely done.

We visited last Saturday, just to get my son out of the house. The inside looks so much better than the outside. Nice and cool inside. The admission price was very cheap. I believe it was $5 for adults and $3 for children. Sundays are free. A worker was very friendly when we arrived. She gave us a quick tour... More

The museum has several rooms with interesting exhibits similar to what you would see if you walked in the park or on a nature trail. The dioramas are well done as is the taxidermy. Don't plan on the day because the entire museum can be done in less than an hour. There is a planetarium but show times are limited.... More

We're a family of museum lovers, and we really enjoyed our first visit to our hometown museum. The room where you can touch everything (animal bones, feathers, eggs, etc.) was the coolest part for us by far and we spent the most time in there.

The exhibits I've seen there are good, along with the presentations in the planetarium. Their gift shop is nice and there are occasional events there for the community. Some exhibits have been there for quite a while but for little ones, they are not too bored with the same animals.

This "small town" museum delivers more than one would expect. The African animal exhibit is pretty impressive, as is the science lab. There is presently a special exhibit of Arctic animals. Our grandson liked this place so much that he asked his mom to take him back for his birthday (instead of going to a movie!).

Me and my family went for an outing and ended up here by accident. We really enjoyed it and even better it was free. Interesting and we saw a lot more than expected.
