They are no longer open at the listed in spite of having signs all over town. Had 2 very disappointed children. The guard says it's been at least 7 months that they open for large groups by appointment only.

exibits are hands-on for kids, if you have kids they'll enjoy it. They had hand cranks - spin them, hear animal sounds. Very touchy-feely.
