We took our 8-year-old grandson here and he was enthralled. There were several hands-on items, and a number of interactive videos. It made for a good few hours on-site. If we were back in the area, I'd certainly bring grandkids here again. That we belong...More

It was air-conditioned, the staff were absolutely amazing and awesome, and it was pleasant. I loved their Egyptian exhibit and all of the taxidermy. Dinosaurs were a little outdated. And I wish they had more on the megafauna. Overall, it was enjoyable.

Took my kids here because we had free admission through our ASTC passport from our local science centre. This museum clearly has budget and/or funding issues. It looks like a museum that looks to have been unchanged from the 70’s. A decent selection of artifacts,...More

I'm glad this place had cheap admission, but if you've got half a dozen kids it might not be so cheap. It wasn't absolutely horrible, but boy is it dated. I don't know when they opened but you can tell they haven't cleaned/dusted their exhibits...More

We saw a frog fish and blind cave fish for the first time ever. The museum is a real gem that offers many interactive displays for young children.

It’s $12 for adults, but we didn’t pay much attention to the price for children. You can get in free with an ASTC museum membership.
