Museum of Life and Science


The mission of the Museum is to create a place of lifelong learning where people, from young child to senior citizen, embrace science as a way of knowing about themselves, their community and their world. The Museum began in 1946 as a small trailside nature center. Generations of families have participated in joyful, enlightening experiences that spark wonder, touch the heart and expand the mind. Today, the Museum is a 70-acre site with 90,000 square feet of indoor exhibit space. The Museum serves over 315,000 annual visitors, and we are building on our traditional educational role with children and families to a broader platform for lifelong learning serving visitors of all ages.
