Kind of small but done with a lot of attention to detail and a very large amount of effort. If you can't get to the Smithsonian, get to this one.
I took my kids here with friends when we were visiting Springfield. I was delighted to see such a variety of interesting exhibits. I enjoyed looking at and being a part of them. There were actually ones that you could actually touch and feel. This is awesome, especially for kids who are hands on learners. I highly recommend the Springfield... More
Had a great time visiting this museum recently with our grandchild. Highlight was the butterfly exhibit in place until fall. Observation room in a natural setting with live butterflies many of which landed on our granchild giving her a thrill. Also, a walk through maze which explains the insects stages of growth ending with a thrill ride for the children.... More
You get to visit four area museums for the price of one! This was one of my favorites. It has many different areas, I really enjoyed the Dinosaur area and it was very interesting to learn about animals and their environments here in town.
This is an excellent little Museum of Natural History, especially for such a small city. The collection has changed very little, though, in more than 60 years. The premises include an excellent planetarium, which puts on daily shows.
The science museum was not large. After walking through, thought there was more, wondering when the experience starts. This was the first of the museums we went into. Just glad it got much better after this one

Our favorite was actually the history museum. The science museum didn't seem to keep our toddler interested for very long and the history museum had a nice... More
The rating may throw some off but this really is a great place to bring the kids. It isn't necessarily better then other places and can't compare with the really big science museums in the huge cities but it is an average place with lots for children to see. It would make a great trip for children and adults a... More
I visit the museums often; they offer interesting lunch hour talks for just a few dollars, and a monthly evening event with live music and drinks. I was just at the wine and chocolate event, which gives you a chance to sample wines (for $10) and check out the new art exhibit in the D'Amour Museum. I never tire of... More
I lived in the area my whole life and the last 30 years in Springfield. This was my first visit to the museums and it was a great time. I am looking forward to returning many times to see all of the displays in the various buildings . I highly recommend visiting the museum and enjoying the great displays.
