The Tate Earth and Science Museum is one of those gem type of places that most people just skip over. That's really too bad as it's a great place to see. It has tons of fossils and geological exhibits and even a full size mastodon...More

My kids love going to the Tate! It's really cool and there is a lot of variety. Dee the Wooly mammoth is pretty awesome and a must see! We love getting rocks from the gift shop before we leave, too.

Great visit and extremely interesting displays. Bones and interesting dioramas explain about what was then and why.

Like bones and stones from 165 million years ago? If you do, stop in. This museum is small but good. You can learn a lot in a couple of hours. It’s up close and personal so touch and feel and learn.

A nice place to spend an hour or so. It's free, there is free parking near by, and they have many interesting displays. Many things of interest nicely displayed in a relatively small space. It's definitely worth a visit if you have the time.

I don't remember there being a charge. I think there was a donation box. I just looked at their website and didn't see an entrance charge. Visit their website and give them a call.

It's free. And they have a donation box if you want to help. They have a mammoth that is great along with so many other things.
