This is a smaller sized science museum. Our children liked that there were a few live animals and the huge dinosaur model.

We went this past weekend with our young children and really enjoyed the museum. The main reason we came is for the rainforest exhibit and we were quite disapointed with that. There is a $5 extra charge to see it and trust me it was not worth it. The rest of the museum was very well done though and the... More

Today was my first time visiting the museum. I took both my children and their friends so 4 kids and 1 adult. Even with my discounted library pass, I paid $64. The Rain Forest Exhibit was an additional $5/person and though it was a nice exhibit, there was nothing extra to justify the additional cost. For the size of the... More

Its a science museum. A little bit of everything in a small sized building. Its not NYC or Boston, but its fun nonetheless. Definitely worth a membership if you are a local resident

Kind of small but done with a lot of attention to detail and a very large amount of effort. If you can't get to the Smithsonian, get to this one.

I took my kids here with friends when we were visiting Springfield. I was delighted to see such a variety of interesting exhibits. I enjoyed looking at and being a part of them. There were actually ones that you could actually touch and feel. This is awesome, especially for kids who are hands on learners. I highly recommend the Springfield... More

Had a great time visiting this museum recently with our grandchild. Highlight was the butterfly exhibit in place until fall. Observation room in a natural setting with live butterflies many of which landed on our granchild giving her a thrill. Also, a walk through maze which explains the insects stages of growth ending with a thrill ride for the children.... More

You get to visit four area museums for the price of one! This was one of my favorites. It has many different areas, I really enjoyed the Dinosaur area and it was very interesting to learn about animals and their environments here in town.

This is an excellent little Museum of Natural History, especially for such a small city. The collection has changed very little, though, in more than 60 years. The premises include an excellent planetarium, which puts on daily shows.
