I love this museum, the love of this museum is the love that you see in a movie of an old movie theater in town that the citizens want to keep alive but they're finding it harder and harder to do so. It is a staple of downtown but it also lacks in rotating exhibits to make you want to go back more than once per year or so. They do try. The building is beautiful.

This place could use some love there's no doubt about that. From an adults eyes there is lots of renovation and updating that could be done BUT my son loves it and let's be honest - that's who this place is for. We went for their most recent first Friday event with Sylvan Heights. My nearly three year old LOVED this FREE event and I'm sure he will be asking to return. He pet a duck and chicks, made bird food, tested different beaks(tools) for picking up food, checked out feathers and got to ask some questions. We were also able to explore the rest of the imagination station - he loved the rock climbing walls, racing against different animals and we spent a loooong time upstairs checking out the reptiles. He got to pet various snakes, lizards and a tortoise. We were able to watch an alligator and turtles swim around in their enclosures. It was truly a very fun time and we look forward to participating in more events. The third floor had some looks and information on them which wasn't a great place for me to entertain him but probably would be really interested for kids a little older (in fact the whole thing would've been great for older kids).

Always a enjoyable moment when I visit with my job. It's always fun to see what they had added new.

Not quite what was expecting. Not a bad place, but did take imagination to make fully worthwhile. As with anything, it is what you make it.

Great place to carry youngsters to have hands on experiences with science concepts and ideas. Carried son here and now carry grandchildren here.
