- Tough lake to fish (weather didn’t help.) rented a small boat and all worked great. Got very windy in the afternoon and we made the mistake of going across the lake (at the dam) in the late afternoon. Was a bit tricky. Wind behind us would have been good. We will be back. Bad day fishing is better than a great day working.Written April 22, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- 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.Written April 10, 2022
- 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!Written November 5, 2019
- This was a trip back into time when Hemet was an agricultural community. I wish it had remained that way.Written September 6, 2021
- I like to see everything in a museum. This is more about fish.
"Max" due to his large size, the mastodon is believed to have stood more than 12 feet high at the shoulders. Radiometric dating placed Max and other paleontological finds .
Holding center stage inside the visitor’s center are the bones of Max, the largest and most complete adult mastodon to be uncovered in the western United States. Max was unearthed in 1993, as the first stage of construction was under way. Christened "Max" due to his large size, the mastodon

- " Historical Theatre That's Been Brought Back To Life "
Built-in 1921 The Historic Hemet Theatre is one of the oldest movie houses in the country. The Hemet Theatre lobby has been remodeled and is nearing completion. The Light, Sound, and Projection systems throughout the Theatre have all been nicely upgraded. The new Restrooms are so nice and well built. A lot of new Theatre shows starting at 7:00 pm, have been entered into the Historic Hemet Theatre schedule. We watched the Soto Band perform the hottest Latin-Funk-R&B- and Dance music. They were very good, as they played a very wide variety of popular music. We had a good time and enjoyed the Soto Band at the newly renovated Historic Hemet Theatre.Written May 1, 2022
