A wonderful and informative museum with so many things to see and do. Perfect place for children but in saying that we had a great time too! Staff are very nice and the entry fee is quite minimal for the amount of exhibits.

The museum was nice but not really for young children or the amount they charge to get in. We walked through the entire museum in under an hour. The outside area with the life size dinosaurs was the best part of the museum. There is...More
