This museum may be small but its mighty, the staff is super friendly and knowledgeable always happy to answer questions for young and old. The planetarium display is very neat and informative. The kids had a really good time and so did I. I would recommend checking this place out

This museum is a gem in the small town of Richmond. Free and open to the public, the museum places an emphasis on education and awareness. Bring your family to see the Mastodon, Allosaurus, or the world's most complete giant beaver; explore the Galaxy with a free planetarium show; meet the friendly snakes, turtles, and lizards on display. There's so much amazing stuff here for you and your kids to discover.
