“Small, but Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2006

A small, but well put together science museum and aquarium. Their offerings are a little scattered and incomplete, representing what they happen to have, instead of a good overview of the topics covered, though what they do have is well displayed, and kept in good working order (not always the case with hands-on museums for children).

The staff and volunteers are helpful and energetic, making for a pleasant afternoon activity for the kids. If you can choose only one, do this museum instead of the next door zoo.
