We went to the museum with our 4 year old son on the recommendation of our friend who’s a local. We weren’t initially planning to go, as we have quite a large & comprehensive natural history museum in our hometown. However, we thought it might be fun for an hour or so on a rainy day so off we went. Never had I been so stunningly & pleasantly surprised! It was an absolutely fabulous little museum, especially for kids. The diaramas with stuffed animals really gave a sense of scale because the animals were placed quite close to the window. The way they arranged all different sizes of bird eggs from smallest to largest was genius. The initial area with live snakes, frogs, & salamanders immediately captured my son’s attention (although we were riveted too as we’d never had the opportunity to see snakes go for a swim before!) And the glass bee hives at the back of the area were wonderfully educational, including a desk where a staff member explained all kinds of information about bees, loaned my son a little magnifying glass to see the bees better, & showed him a transparent pipe that allows the bees to fly out of the museum at will where he could put his ear to it & listen & feel the hum of the bees. There were so many interactive displays where kids can manoeuvre wheels or levers or pretend to be an oceanographer going on an exploratory dive etc. There was also a staffed aquarium where you couldn’t touch the sea creatures, but a staff member helpfully gave fascinating information about the crabs, starfish, & other creatures in there. What was also wonderful was that they’d thought to put little step stools for the kids to get up & see the displays, and allowing a cast of a T-Rex skull to actually be touched made the huge teeth just THAT much more amazing to my little guy! Everything in that museum seemed geared toward fun & interactive education. Would highly recommend a visit to anyone with kids!!
