- Valerie DWhat fun this free museum is! We took our four young kids here for a Saturday afternoon and had a blast! We stayed until they closed and our kid still didn't want to leave! They have a room full of taxidermied animals with colorful realistic background that makes them look alive! There is a lot of interesting historical facts in exhibits. They have hands on kids rooms where kids can pretend they were living on the frontier. They have travelling exhibits that are a lot of fun as well and very kid-friendly. We have seen one on dinosaurs and one on castles. I habe taken classes here for tours and those are always well done.
- Rob EI'm probably prejudiced since I grew up near Aberdeen, but I love this museum that gives the history of the area. It's not extravagant, but the docents are very nice, and the exhibits are well kept. The building itself is historical. I will go there every time I get "home", which is every few years.
- Nicholas WVery educational and informative. They always have something new going on here. The staff are friendly and quick to answer any questions.
