“Fun and educational”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is a great little museum. Very well planned and lots of hands-on things to do for kids and adults. If you are interested in recycling and ecology, it is a must-see.

“Take your kids here for trashy education.”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Just throw it away? Get a good look at "away." Every grade school child should get to see this. It promotes careful shopping, conservation, recycling, etc.
