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. This spring, check out the new "From Weather to Climate: Our Changing World, a self-curated exhibit that connects weather to the science behind global climate changes and how it affects human and animal communities around the world. 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
