“Great place to take out-of-town guests”
Reviewed 18 November 2011

I always take my out of town here - there is so much to see and the animal collections are unparalled, except for a visit to the zoo. Plus they even have a planetarium.

“Old and needs a makeover”
Reviewed 14 November 2011

The museum is is a nice little trip for maybe preschool age or a little older but older children get bored easily with it. The trails in the back are nice for walking. And enjoying a picnic there is something a smaller child would enjoy.

“Great place for families”
Reviewed 25 July 2010

The Museum of York County is a lot of fun. My kids really enjoyed it. They have planetarium shows, mounted African animals (including lions and an elephant), and kids play areas. Overall the museum has something for everyone. My family will be returning!
