A nice relaxing spot for children. Planetarium, exhibits, animals, small train, room to run and burn off energy! Try it once and you will be back. Camping is adjacent and has a charge for hook ups but FREE if you pitch a tent!

We stumbled upon the Neuseway center one afternoon and we were pleasantly surprised at all it had to offer and weve been back several times! The animal exhibit was really neat- could use a bit of sprucing up and the attendants could really interact with...More
