“Great little museum”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Try to go when they are having a special exhibit, but even without that there are caves simulating natural Florida, giant shark teeth and lots of things to touch and explore. The butterfly garden is amazing... well worth the extra fee. You might also want to go next door to the art museum to enjoy the art and have lunch in the cafe. The food is great.

Visited here with my grandchildren and they loved it. The play space for the kids was also a lot of fun. There was plenty to see and it was very educational..

“Worth it”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

It's a great place to visit. Especially on hot or rainy days when outdoor activities are not possible. Take you time . and return often. There is so much to see!
