I was exploring St. Joseph on the first nicely warm Saturday since I arrived in town almost a month ago. I saw this place on the map and found it! It is great. Lots of interesting exhibits revolving around the local natural and social history!

My grandkids always ask to go to the Remington Nature Center. They are 9 & 5 years old. They are fascinated by the exhibits. Sometimes they have a scavenger hunt for the kids.

We visited the Remington Nature center while in St. Joseph. It was very interesting learning about the wildlife (then and now) that inhabit(ed) this area of Missouri. It also provides history of the populations that lived in Missouri as well. The indoor beehive was fascinating.

I finally got around to visiting this local museum. While it is not too large, it is full of interesting exhibits. I enjoyed, in particular, the walk of mankind's growth through time--even if I did do it backwards. The location is also a plus. Take time to take a stroll along the walkway.

Exhibits are well done. I particularly enjoyed the beaver exhibits, and the interactive animal tracks animation. The animal tracks identification round table uses lights and audio describing the tracks of each animal one at a time. When the audio begins, n beautiful tracks appear in what looks like sand (but is not). They disappear upon conclusion of the description. There... More

This place has lots of interesting artifacts, fish tanks, wildlife exhibits, a little something for everyone. My grandsons love going there over and over again, plus the paved trail outside along the river is nice and mostly level, very accessible.

This was a great place to visit. It also sits right next to the river. It has a lot of great stuff for kids to see, but also adults. It would make a great school field trip for 8-10 year olds.

This is a really fun Nature Center to see. There is a minimal fee to get in, but it is definitely worth it. Restrooms are available on the inside once you pay. There is plenty to see for kids and adults. There is a wildlife viewing area, a 7000 gallon aquarium, animal exhibits, cultural exhibits, over 1200 artifacts, a beautiful... More
