This is a must if you have small kids with you! Lots of things to explore. They even have a huge nest outside.

As a beginning birder the wonderful array of birds displayed was fascinating! it helped me gain a better appreciation for field markings. The museum may not be considered modern but what it doesn't have in pizzazz it makes up for in genuine and thoughtful content! I have returned and will return whenever I get a chance.

Small museum with a lot of local animal and bird life on display much like a very large park nature center, which was interesting for us to see. Rotating exhibits that are smallish - the one we saw was on Monarch butterflies. They ask only for a donation which is completely at your discretion. There is a very cool garden with only native plants that are not tended in any way except to keep the paths clear, which gives you some idea of what actually grows and blooms in the area in season, and also contains some lovely sculpture to see. Absolutely charming place! Very authentic.
