Yes, the museum has a lot of reading and toddlers can be difficult to engage. This is because we seek to balance between engaging older adults and scientists with younger children. We do, however, offer a scavenger hunt, which often keeps older children excited about...More

It all started with an overturned block of rock. It will start all manner of conversations to any inquiring mind that walks above primordial ground where fossil tracks abound. Remains and casts of remains are knotted nicely through storyboards that are readable, accessible and a...More

Neat spot for those with interest. Kids 6,7,8,9 all into it even with the cheesy scavenger hunt to get a “prize” (which was a weak temporary tattoo or a pencil) Still fun, neat story and great history!
