Great. Very interesting, informative and a wide variety of things to look at. The Butterfly House is fabulous, for children and adults alike.

Arrived late rather than early. Butterflies were sleeping. Interesting museum. Event, not so good. Thought price of admission included refreshments. Not so. Would definitely return to the museum, but event wasn't worth the trip.

Casual and fun. The full museum was open and it was nice to wander without any crowd. I recommend joining the trivia match and checking out the butterfly garden, though most of the butterflies were asleep.

Don't waste your time or money. This event is adults only because they serve alcohol. The museum itself is definitely geared for young children. Extremely disappointed

Had a really great time visiting the museum with friends after work on a Tuesday. Drank local beer and actually learned a lot by playing trivia and walking through the exhibits.

I had a good amount of fun for a work night. I think 5$/ beer + 10$ admission was a bit much. I understand limiting the number of people that come in, but maybe 10$ and... continued
