We visited here spontaneously on a Tuesday and we were the only people in there! It was a really neat place and my kids (8 and 5) really enjoyed it as did I. Hands down the best part was the space area with the huge...More

Imagination Station has many interesting exhibits. The Science on a Sphere is amazing. There are programs that can show the solar system, weather, and many other interesting phenomenon. The reptiles are very interesting and you can see them up close. The active Bee Hive is...More

We visit this museum 2-3 times a year. Our grandkids enjoy the hands on activities. They never get tired of the race the animals game to see who's faster! At first glance, adults may think this museum is small, but if you look through a...More

The adult fee is a bit pricey for the limited items in the museum. The best section was the sports athletic equipment with interactive buttons for kids to touch. The second floor is the reptiles in small tanks. The third floor had a history exhibit...More

I wasn't sure how my kids would react to this museum being that it was only $5 and in the small town of Wilson, but it was a lot of fun! The kids enjoyed all of the activities on the 1st floor and the reptiles...More

$5/person wasted as far as I was concerned. My 8-year old granddaughter was bored in about 30 minutes. The first floor had a few "interactive" displays but at least half weren't operational. The best thing, the very short climbing wall, was blocked off. I'd really...More

It is evident that in a different era, this place was cutting edge. Now, it seems a bit sad and run down. I don't know if the money to improve it just isn't there, but to be honest, my children were not at all bothered...More
