Time your visit for the right exhibits and it's great. The usual displays are OK but nothing special.

This place has had better times, it's been there for almost 50 years. It is starting to get run down and most of everything is outdated. So glad they are building a new one by the bay in downtown. it will open in 2015, and i really hope it is better than this.
by Matthew Brock
Horrible. Everything is outdated and the majority of the displays are inoperable. Wildlife area is depressing and gloomy as is the rest of the establishment.
