There are three or four levels to wander through. The top floor and the largest and most disgusting display of live Madagascar hissing cockroaches. A really nice place with hands-on activities for younger children.

Love visiting this museum. We receive complementary entrance for being in the Military. My 3 year old son loves all the hands on activities this museum offer. There is plenty of parking and it is right next to the botanicals garden.
