BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Buena Vista Museum of Natural History is changing its name slightly by adding the word "science", Friday, announced officials.
The museum's executive director Koral Hancharick said that science has always been a part of the museum's mission, but was never made clear through its name.
The addition of the word "science" also coincides with the newly improved and updated exhibits, including an exhibiti from the Castle Museum Science and Technology center which closed last year.
"Without science, kids don't think critically, and when you don't think critically everything just kind of goes wrong," said Hancharick.
