    Fabulous show, lots of talent and a good storyline. Worth going to see, sound system was a pleasant surprise and the grand scale of the outdoor setting was perfect. The dancing was rewarding

    This is a very small museum but it contains a lot of local history. It's a great place to visit to learn more about the local area and economy, and it doesn't take long to see it all.

    I was staying with family in Winchester and was trying to find something nearby to keep my 4 year old occupied. He is very interested in extinct animals right now and I discovered the Western Science Center while searching online. I am glad that I found it because it was a hit.

    First impression was that there was a really large parking lot and there were A LOT of kids running/playing outside in this fenced in courtyard area. I thought that I was accidentally trespassing at a school. The first building I found had a sign that said that all exhibits were permanently closed so I thought maybe the museum closed down. I saw a mom will a stroller in the parking lot and I asked her if there’s a museum here. She told me where to go. SO, when you are in the parking lot and are facing all the big buildings head to the building that is immediately right to the fenced in courtyard. Above you will see signs of different prehistoric eras hanging. Besides that, it is NOT obvious where the museum is.

    Anyway, once we got to the museum and exhibits it was great. It was only $9 (4 and under were free) and it took up about 2 hours of our time. When you walk in there are exhibits focusing on local archaeology. The other exhibit area is about paleontology. My son was not interested in the archaeology, but he LOVED the paleontology stuff. There is a video to watch, fossils to see, interactive things for kids (and adults I guess) to do that my son thought was super fun. I can see a typical person rushing through the whole museum in 30 mins, but if you enjoy these types of things and/our your child likes to do little interactive activities...you could easily be there for 2 hours (we probably could’ve started longer but I was hungry).

    Side note: the bathrooms were really big and really nice and clean.

    If I had gone to this museum alone, I probably would’ve given it a 4 (it was pretty small), BUT seeing how much fun my son had...well, that moves it up to a 5.

    A great workout to park at the bottom and hike up to a "well worth it " view! Trails wind around and through beautiful rock outcroppings, local flora and fauna. Usually fairly quiet and uncrowded. Wonderful sunset, moonrise view location!

    We rented e-bikes at the Visiter's Center. A little on the expensive side. Our intention was to ride around the lake. However the terrain was riddled with divots due to previous rain which made for hard going, even on an e-bike. We only made it 4 miles when we had to turn around to get back in time for our 2 hour rental return. (We did stop for a lunch break at one of the available picnic tables.) Needless to say the sun was shining and the lake view was beautiful.

    Beautiful sight of the lake and some flowers but I was expecting a lot more flowers. The puppies were starting to bloom very scattered.

    Fun place for your kids to let off some steam and splash about. Make it a picnic and enjoy the waterside activities.

    Chinese Mystery in the mountains of the Great Inland Empire. This stone was carved around 5 to 7 thousand years ago by a group that landed on the shores of Hemet. They commemorated the location with this magnificent map and maze of the general area.

    We had to wait for the swimming pool. They were working hard.

    There was a playground in the swimming pool for the little ones.

    Once we we had water, we could swim. So good!

    We could enjoy the mountains as well

    Worthwhile to enjoy!
