We have always took our grands here since they were babies. They really enjoy seeing the animals and getting to just go through the place without having to hold our hands. It’s always fun.

The animal specimens are great. My daughter loves the bears. Don't miss the planetarium. The bird nests and eggs from the cabinets were interesting.

If you are into African animals or star gazing this is a great place to visit. I take my cub scouts there and they love it. Low cost and wide spaces so you never feel crowded.
