Our granddaughter is coming again this weekend. One request, "Can we go back to the Nature museum?" Great and engaging staff.

Great exhibits, very educational, local animals you don't see elsewhere. For example, tiger salamanders. Behind is a field where woodcocks and meadowlarks nest in a natural meadow. Very special for those who are interested.

All of the staff were so kind, enthusiastic and informative. They explained that the land is protected as natural pools formed after they were left behind from glacier activity. They were so kind with my one and a half year and let him touch a star fish in the touch pool. My son loved runnning around on the trails and it's definately a place I'd go back to. You can tell the staff have a passion for what they do.


Tip: Some libraries offer free museum passes which may include this museum.

This is a wonderful destination for the entire family.
The South Fork Natural History Museum provides interesting activity for young people to discover the nature of the Eastern end of Long Island.
There are educators available for visiting school groups, touch tanks for young attendees, field trips, nature walks, bird watching events, dioramas, and group activities available.
The gift shop can not be beat with books, t-shirts, bags, jewelry, charming house gifts, and even bug spray and tick repellent.
If given the opportunity it is a delightful way to spend the afternoon with the family.
This is a life saver when the grandchildren are visiting and it is raining.

We had a wonderful time here. The woman who showed us around was fantastic with my son. They have a room downstairs where the children can touch sea creatures. They even have a tank of sea horses which you don't see everyday. Will definitely go back!!
