Not much to see. The upper levels were closed when we visited, so maybe there would have been something more interesting there. Not worth the $5 entry fee in my opinion.

Great museum featuring interactive and well curated exhibits on local history of the region. Loved the Moon exhibit too- very informative, fascinating and well worth the trip.

Great welcome from Ryan who explained about the museum and its exhibits. The museum was full of local artefacts and stories of local people. The exhibit about the moon was excellent. Worth more than the 5 dollar entrance fee.

Popped in to check it out as I am interested in museums. Good informative displays on Nelson's past but the best treat was the moon exhibition which was out of this world. Disappointing welcome and I think a donation might be more appropriate than a $5 charge.
