So cute! Loved that there were people in each exhibit so willing to help. Very clean, family friendly. Smelt great. Lots of smiling faces. We had a wonderful experience. Highly recommend :)

Fantastic!! This was the best field trip I have ever taken my students! Very organized and kept the children's attention the whole time. The restaurant, Nature's Table, was amazing! I will go back just to eat, LOL! Riley, our guide, was incredible, too!
Plus the extra Educational class you can add is so worth the extra charge!

This museum is beautifully done! So many interesting exhibits. And the folks who work thoughout all the different areas are so pleasant and knowledgeable. The people of Decatur are fortunate to have such a place. And anyone traveling nearby need to consider it a must see.
