I stumbled upon this gem during a weekend stay in Durham. What a fantastic resource!
Its really two museums in one. There is a large, indoor area, with interactive displays about severe weather, kids making contraptions, space travel, and a 2nd floor Science Lab. Do not miss the animals - they have owls, salamanders, baby alligators, muskrats, opossums, painted turtles, wood chucks and robins! The outside area consists of a large walking trail, with a lemur exhibit, wolves, bears, a farmland exhibit and - my favorite - the butterfly house! There is even a miniature train to take you around the site! The museum is fully interactive, and has an active interpretive program c/w staff to help answer questions! The museum caters to special events, like weddings, birthday parties, and corporate events - a great place for a special occasion, especially for kids!
