  • I had the best experience!!! I would recommend everyone to go and to take their children as well because they have a new play area. Most museums say "DONT TOUCH ANYTHING" but this museum encourages hands on learning. The learning is endless and they can also give you a tour so you can gain more knowledge and experience about their different exhibits. I was skeptical at first but glad I kept an open mind.
  • Many things to look at, but the top floor is always 10 degrees warmer.
  • Some many interesting displays! They pack in dinosaurs, anthropology, geology, anatomy, astronomy and lots of animals into a relatively small space. You could spend quite a few hours reading all the info and trying the hands-on items.
  • Always a wonderful place to learn and visit
  • Staff is very friendly & knowledgable.
