This is a nice little museum to take the kids. There are live animal exhibits, science exhibits, and a planetarium among other things. Good way to spend a couple of hours out of the heat.

I really enjoyed the planetarium. The other exhibits were very nice as well. I attended this museum as part of a conference. The drive from town was nice as well as we passed some historic sites.

Went with friend who was visiting from out of town as there really wasn't too much going on. This place was small but surprisingly fun. Spun around in gyroscope thing which was good but planetarium was the bomb. So serene. Best nap in years.
