“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Excellent if you're taking the family or looking around on your own. Take your time through all the exhibits (I loved watching the schoolkids watching the snakes!) and enjoy something to eat there also. I was there while a friend had a small date with the RVI and spent a lovely 2-3 hrs while waiting for her.

“Quick tour around the Hancock”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

A beautiful location and building. My son and I enjoyed walking around this museum, but allow no more than 1.5 hours as there is only 2 floors. Lots of resources and items to view. Well worth a look. ;-)

“Interesting museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I like the museum but since it was remodelled it seems geared towards children , which is great if you are taking children. It's airy and spacious.
