There is always something new to see. Small enough to be able to get close up to the exhibits. Convenient parking, good value for the money. They are always improving and expanding.

We visited the center with out of town visitors that included 3 teenagers. Everyone was thoroughly entertained. The center has both high tech and low tech exhibits and animals. Everyone really enjoyed it. Easy parking, friendly staff, and reasonable priced.

I have seen people with food and drinks. I carried around a beverage and crackers and brought peanut butter sandwiches for grandson. They also have a place you can grab a bite to eat there (kinda pricey though).
