A wonderful place for elementary school kids and their families. The hands on science exhibits are fun and the small zoo with otters and sea birds is a fun way to learn and connect with nature.

It’s a children’s museum with a focus on nature and science. The animal sanctuary section contains cute river otters. Little kids and babies will appreciate CuriOdyssey.

This place isn't huge it basically consists of an indoor room of lots of hands on and sensory experiments for kids and then an outdoor mini zoo. To be honest the zoo part was a disappointment all the animals except the otter were sleeping (so avoid mid morning for the zoo and try to hit it earlier) but the science part was perfect for my 4 year old. He spent hours figuring everything out... And had a tantrum when I called it a day. It would have been five stars from him and he told me it was the best ever museum. High praise indeed.

Cool kids science museum. There is a zoo area where kids can see local wildlife like coyotes and owls. Inside there are lots of hands on experiments for the kids to check out. Its not huge, but enough to occupy the kids for a few hours. There is also a great playground nearby.
