Mrs.Q says: What a great museum in a City of a number of great museums.
The Museum is easily reachable by bus and free parking can be had on Cannon Drive. Luckily the meters haven’t gotten here yet so street parking is still free here. You could easily see most of the Museum in two hours depending on the age of the children you bring along. The Butterfly Exhibit is an exhibit that Children & Adults will enjoy. They offer Thi Chi and Yoga in the Garden area. Have a room to eat lunch, if needed. Wonderful Museum for children – very hands on for the little ones, and room for strollers. A coat room for checking in your items. They offer special times when they feed the Turtles, release of the Butterflies – check on times when you enter. Also have classes for Composting 101, special Teen, Children & Family Programs. The Q’s have never been here before because we thought it was for children only – not so. The Butterfly exhibit is a wonderful exhibit for all especially if you are six years old, then it is magical. Go and enjoy!
