Once a year I visit with my kids for my birthday. I would go all the time but with two youngsters it ends up being my birthday gift to have them behave while I enjoy myself. They typically have a paid exhibit but the majority is free. It is a very large museum with many galleries. The exhibits are remarkable and well displayed. The children enjoy many of the exhibits as well. I would highly recommend this exhibit to anyone but with caution if you have active or young children.

What a nice place to go for the day. Even though we came on a pretty chilly day it was still nice to walk around see the animals enjoy the fresh air and take a walk around the museum on the property. This is a lovely place to run or ride bikes, and definitely an ideal and picturesque picnic location. They have some farm animals and even a bison on the property, you can also visit their bobcat.

I love this Science Museum! My kids love this Science Museum! We frequent this area and plan to visit every-other-time. The children love the art area and spend no less than an hour there. We have seen some of the featured films in the dome and also seen a planetarium presentation. The exhibits are mostly permanent so keep your cards to measure growth over time. We have our cards from 2014. Get a daily schedule at the admission desk to help you plan your events.
