We took our granddaughter for a trip to the Museum. She loves all the dinosaurs fossils, so she chose a trip to the Museum of Natural History instead of the Children's Museum. We spent the afternoon there. We all enjoyed the different exhibits. We went to all the different rooms and exhibits. The place is small but has lots of educational and interesting exibits to look at and enjoy. She especially enjoyes the room with all the live snKea and lizards most especially the live bee hive where you can watch all the bees coming and going. Very interesting. They have a small area to explore outside. Tables where you can have a picnic. Lots of trees. It is a neat place and we enjoyed it very much. We would go back when they have some special exhibits that come to College Station, Texas.

The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History is a small museum, but is great for kids who want to learn. My granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed it and the exhibits are indeed educational. A great place to spend a couple of hours with your kids.

This is fairly average for a Texas County Museum. Adjust your expectations, this is not a huge museum in a large metropolitan area, it will be small and quaint. The Tarzan exhibit was such a fun and odd find, but completely worth browsing. Some really neat local history artifacts and the live animals were an added bonus. Worth a quick stop and a good price for what you are getting. Support local museums and attractions as you travel, your donations help them continue to operate and improve their collections.

This museum is small but definitely worth it. I took my little brother in the Spring and they had a "temporary photography exhibit" and it was fabulous! The permanent exhibits were excellent as well.
I wish more towns had these small museums. It is awesome educational exposure for young kids rather than just taking them somewhere for entertainment.
Would definitely visit again.

Very small place. Limited permanent exhibits. Third rate. Some traveling exhibits. Costly for what you get.
