I have heard of this place for years but finally got the chance to go and tour their museum. It was fabulous. You would never think about the wild things you see in this museum. It is a must.

If you have not taken your kids here you are missing out. It is a great museum that everyone can and will enjoy.

This is a relatively small museum but it is packed with examples and knowledge. Numerous specimens on display along with a little information on each. Some interactive displays including a meteorite you can actually pick up. A very nice gift area with reasonable prices. Admission is free, open every day but only 2-5 on Sundays. It took us about an hour to go through, would be good for smaller kids with short attention spans.

Located in Decatur, AL, just West of I-65 on the Tennessee river you will find one of the most complete Entomology collections as well as other critters that call Alabama home. Great stop for a day trip to Decatur or a break from I-65 driving.
