“Interactive fun for the kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

I loved the new kids section, it includes heaps of tactile exhibits...cause kids just love to touch! My daughter loved the projection of fish. I loved the animals sections, still fun 30 years later!

“So much!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

I enjoyed everything about this museum. I had to ask where Dolly the sheep was at, but the guide was friendly and seemed to anticipate that I might ask this question.
