I took my son here a while back and we just found it kind of boring. Some of the exhibits are neat but mostly you just feel like you are walking through a boring antique store.

Actually I went a very long time ago with a group of Day Care children. I truly enjoyed visiting there & the children were truly intrigued. Haven't been back, my days are busy but I want to take my grandchildren soon.

Bosque is pronounced "boss-kee" or "Bah-skee" and is a Spanish word meaning woods or wooded. The Bosque River was named by early Spanish explorers and the county was probably named after the river.
