There are displays on the different types of insects - which my boys found fascinating.
But the real treat, I think, is upstairs and the displays on animals with many, many stuffed real ones! These stuffed giraffes are almost as high as we are on the second floor!
This stuffed elephant commands an entire room to himself. Mighty impressive!
The fish/coral reef exhibit was quite life-like. I almost wanted to hold my breath. And if you look closely, by the conch shell, you can spy an orange Easter egg. During different holidays, the museum hides trinkets for children to find.
The information panels provide interesting facts and tips for all of us to help preserve the beautiful planet.
You can also reserve (for free) a reptile show! It was pretty fun to join this group and all of my children liked guessing and touching each of the different reptiles.
THINGS TO KNOW:

Before the traffic lights, turn left and go up a small hill past the Marriott Center and the museum is on your left. Please park on the north side of the museum and remember to get a parking pass from the front desk.
