This is a great place to bring children. Outside it looks small but inside it has 31/2 floors if displays, you can be in there for 2 hours if you read everything. There is a play area for children to learn the sciences.
I think they are really trying, but it’s obvious they have very limited resources. I found it odd that they had a pretty extensive display of various medical areas of the human body(muscular, skeletal etc) in the young children area, as well as info on various cancers. Maybe not the most appropriate age group to target for that information.

About Buena Vista Museum of Natural History & Science
Lions, tigers, and kangaroos await kids and adults alike at the Buena Vista Museum of Natural History & Science. However, the museum isn't a zoo. Standing shoulder to shoulder and as large as life, the taxidermied animals can give a brief reprieve to those with the natural history bug. And the museum's 16,000 sq.ft. of exhibits are home to more than specimens of currently living critters. A fully articulated extinct sea lion hangs above the floorboards, and situated in the museum are world-class Miocene—14-16 million year old—fossils with hundreds of teeth from now-extinct sharks—the teeth excavated from the Sharktooth Hill area. The museum also displays a large and diversified collection of African, Asian, and North American animal exhibits. Guests can also explore a life size interpretive Native American family dwelling area, gems and minerals, petrified woods, and a hands-on interactive science discovery center.
