We ended up here a few months ago while on a spontaneous family weekend adventure and were simply blown away at how amazing this place was. The kids loved the activity center and the ability to stand that close to a real "live' polar bear is something they still talk about! If we ever did end up close to this area again, this place is 100% on our list of places to visit again!

This museum is free for local residents and moderately priced for anyone from out of town. Interesting exhibits, fun gift shop, and a planetarium at certain times of the year. There are special programs in the summer that are geared for children and a play space out back but is often filled with interesting exhibits or animals.

Impressive assortment of taxidermied mammals, reptiles, and birds on the main hall. A separate section features interactive science experiments fun for kids and adults. The second floor of their main hall features a varied collection of cultural pieces.
