  • Located in Michigan, Michigan State University's Museum of natural history around here, not a Museum of this scale in the entire state of Michigan itself almost as a tourist destination is very cool, because you can do it. The amount of data compared to other famous place ever, but also the existence of this Museum in Ann Arbor, Nishi Singh study would show the column. Also good with children.

  • 还不错,小孩很好奇。我们花了一个半小时观看这个地方,这个建筑物有4层,每层各有特色。我建议自己带点水进去,有时候会渴了。  more »
  • Great hands on museum for kids to go to and adults alike. Worth every cent of the $6 suggested donation for admission. Their permanent exhibits include a evolution floor with tones of bones of extinct...  more »

  • I love the museum of natural history, or "the dinosaur museum." It's amazing for anyone curious about biology, paleontology, astronomy, geology, history, and more. It's hard to review a place that is formative to your view of the world? Suffice to say, at any age I have felt joy entering the beautiful old entrance hall and walking up the stone stairs to the museum. I could spend hours among the exhibits, new and old, and always learn something new.
  • It's a pretty good experience considering it's free. The exhibits don't actually move with the exception of one traveling exhibit on the top floor, so I wouldn't want to come often; however, it's a great place to spend a few hours with your kid, friend, or significant other. It was super hot when we went, so don't expect the most comfortable air.
  • Old, beautiful building holding an extraordinary compact collection of items from all ages. Most of the exhibitions are "old fashion" yet really rich in content. The venue is a little bit hot during the summer but a must check spot during the winter. Great for kids, even small ones will find entertainment by touching all kind of bones and reproductions. The museum store carries also interesting books and merchandise. A big remodeling is coming for 2018 so I can't wait to see all this stuff in the new building.
  • Great place! I've been multiple times and it's still fun! Free admission (but suggested donation of $6), has lots of cool activities for kids on the weekends.
  • We go to the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History almost every time we go to the dentist. It is an amazing place. Outside is an awesome butterfly and pollinator garden that wraps around the building! The garden is designed to allow you to see all four stages of a butterfly - egg, caterpillar, chrysalis, and adult. Inside are displays of prehistoric life that include a multitude of fossils. There are many examples of Michigan plants and animals. Rock and mineral specimens thrill little rock hounds! The planetarium is occasionally open and shows were for the low cost of $5 per person for 2016. The admission price was a donation in 2016. The University of Michigan Museum of Natural History is a great deal! Your only issue will be finding a parking place!
