This is a lovely way to introduce children to nature. The highlight for most children is the Judy Istock Butterfly Haven where butterflies from around the world fly free. There are also exhibits to climb in, splash in and explore an extreme green house. Check out "Nature’s Struggle: Survival & Extinction" a new self-developed exhibit that explores explores why some species go extinct, why others thrive and what guests can do now – in our urban area and throughout the region – to promote species conservation, biodiversity and strengthen their relationship with nature. The museum offers a variety of daily events for children and adults, including animal feedings and butterfly releases. Strollers available for rent. Food is available at the restaurant on-site. Paid parking is available nearby or look for free street parking. It's also convenient to public transportation.
