Took my 4 -year- old granddaughter here as a trip out in this cold winter weather. What a great little treasure. Small but wow she loved it. We had just missed a story time (wished we hadn't) but there was plenty for her to investigate. Very natural setting, great historic house (just check out the floor to ceiling windows and the shutters!) and free. Bathrooms are a great treat as they each have murals of nature painted on the walls. Several turtles that come up to the face of the tank and "interact" with the viewer. Granddaughter LOVED this. Couple of snakes one that also took a liking to her attention. Bones, skins, and more to see and touch. Nice display on birds, nest and their eggs. Small display on local fossils. Please touch area and her favorite a full wall mural of meadow, trees and creek with magnetic critters to move and pose. There is also a small display on Timbuktu, a small, early, African American town just down the creek. The volunteers we meet were so nice to my granddaughter. Lots of upcoming events, literature and a gift shop. Donations are always appreciated. We look forward to investigating some of the nature trails when the weather improves. Nice treasure to find.
