  • when there for a banquet. staff was great. location was nice. theatre is nice too, but i would prefer better chairs. food was pretty tasty. they just needed more cocktail tables for the number of people in the room.
  • Great museum depicting the history of man and animals with loads of activities downstairs. The exhibits are well laid out with lots to see and do. From time to time there are special exhibits such as dinosaurs.
  • Very informative. Loved the lifelike exhibits. The boat is huge! A worthy trip. Highly recommended.
  • Haven't been in a while but I was very excited to see lots of new exhibits a little sad about how much the science gallery has changed but it still had fun things to do. The planetarium had a wonderful show on I'm not super into space travel and that sort of stuff other than star gazing but they keep it interesting and full of new information. Would definetly return soon
  • If you have kids, this place is a godsend in winter. For a membership, you get admission to the whole museum, the Planetarium, and Touch the Universe. Our kids will happily spend a -40 winter day running around, picking out their favorite trilobite fossil and playing Pirates on the Nonsuch. Parking is very annoying though.
