We took our goddaughter and her brother and was surprised at the number of birds and creatures they have here! We also got to see the golden eagle up close and personal when one of the caretakers brought her out. Educational and fun!

Very interactive Museum. My grandson has always had a great time here! It is the right size for toddlers and young children. Great hands on exhibits and play areas. There is also a great playground next to the Museum.
