The Nature Museum is such a treasure! It has an amazing collection of plants, animals, and insects. One of it's best features is the butterfly room, which allows visitors to experience live butterflies in their natural environment. The museum also has some great nature trails to explore. The Nature Museum is a real treat for both kids and adults.
