  • Great exhibits today! Really enjoyed the field trip with my daughter's class. I haven't been in a while, so I will be back in the summer to check out the rest of the great stuff here. Could have done without the explanation of the term "piss poor" to the third graders. Just an explanation that buckskin is softened with urine would have been sufficient. Using that kind of language in an educational setting was not appropriate.
  • Amazing place to go. There got an observatory and planetarium and tons of beautiful rocks. Not to busy so you can go at your own pace and not be bothered.
  • A little pricey but there's a lot to see and do. My husband and I went to the King Tut exhibit which is there until the end if August and it was well worth it. Everything in the exhibit are replicas but it's the closest you will get to Tut without going to Eygypt.
  • This place is great, inside and out. The grounds are gorgeous; the campus is made up of old stone buildings and the Institute itself is pristine. I have great memories of coming here for field trips for school, and I found it even more interesting as an adult. The big wooly mammoth will always be my favorite part. For a museum gift shop, they actually sell some nice stuff. I like that there's a big variety of educational toys.
  • beautiful place. Just remember that if it's already in the case, they don't like you to "rediscover" it with a baseball bat.
