Nature Museum

What are some good nature museums, centers or aquariums in southern new england to bring children to? Suggestions other than the ones in Boston would be great because I think they’ve been to those. Do you know what I found? Massachusetts Audubon members enjoy free admission to 44 wildlife sanctuaries statewide. But you don’t have to be a member to go. I’ve visited several Audubon sites there on my east coast visits. Many have Nature Centers. The Nature Conservancy offers opportunities as well. Halfway Pond Island Preserve is one. The island, which sits in the middle of a 232-acre coastal plain pond, is remarkable for its little evidence of human disturbance. Core borings indicate that some of the trees on the island are at least 175 years old. Contact the Boston office at (617) 227-7017 to schedule a visit.
