This is a fantastic museum, for kids and adults. Exhibits that are fun for kids and interesting for adults. Programs for kids and adults. Animals for all, otters, birds, reptiles and on and on. And the gift shop is extensive and reasonable. It is a big do not miss if your in Central Oregon.

There is something for everyone here. Very well arranged and informative. Lots of parking. Lots of walking to see the entire facility. They do have at least one wheelchair to loan but if mobility is a challenge then please call first to confirm how many wheelchairs they have available. This is a vey popular venue.

A few years go by and I renew my membership and enjoy it all
over again. Many rotating exhibits so there's always something
new.

No matter how many times you visit, can always find something new and fun to do with kids. Kids loved digging for potatoes and playing pioneer games
