Science for every age

Small facility, but full of engaging activities for all ages to share. The live animals brought clarity to issues as human encroachment on animal territory.

See local wildlife that is rescued by the volunteers that work here. Great for children to learn about the local habitat.

We were pleasantly surprised to find out when we arrived on Friday that admission was free the 3rd Friday of the month. There are hands on displays and live demonstrations that keep school age children occupied.

The staff is very good at engaging children in animal science. The rescue of these birds is a nice cause as well.

I took my two year old granddaughter and she loved every minute. The museum is definitely geared for a hands on experience. The soaring like a bird action video was great even for a two year old. She also liked the what do the animal eat kiosk.

My daughter and I decided to walk to the museum from our hotel. It was really interesting how they care for injured animals and send them back into the wild, if possible. The animals that end up staying at the museum seem to be taken care of and spoiled a little, which is a good thing! People of all ages... More

We have taken our kids and grand kids here many many times. It's a place for all families. They have exhibits of animals, birds, endangered species, and have trained staff to explaine about each as well as handle wildlife that are brought in because they need mending and recovery periods...

seeing natural wildlife for the area is always impressive. The people who work there are also informative and very helpful. Hands on classes for children is the best educational experience of all. I highly recommend this Museum for being unique, informative and helpful to our natural wildlife.
