WOW! I was really impressed. The ark exhibit was excellent. I've been to many zoos but of course could never really pet most animals. This exhibit was great you could pet a buffalo, wolf, rhino, all kinds of sheep, eld, moose and many many more. The coal mine was great also. It looked like an underground cave. I have kids all ages and they all loved it and because the little ones got sleepy we didn't get to see it all in 3 hours. Some kids really like the grocery store and the puppet stage. others really liked the treasure exhibit. Overall it was very fun and very educational, I bought a family pass and will be back. You won't be disappointed on this one.

A truly hands-on museum for preschoolers and younger elementary age students. Your 4-5th graders will not be thrilled here.

Younger students will love that they can climb on things, touch things, dress up, play grocer, mailman, pilot, fireman, weatherman and SO much more!

Special activities and labs throughout they day run by the staff. A great winter or wet weather activity.
