Such a well planned Museum for kids ( & adults) to learn about no only their surroundings (animals, snakes, etc. in the area), but also science, space and other labs periodically. The kids will love seeing the live alligator on exhibit.

There is a charge but I do not remember the price. However, city residents get free admission on Sundays.
