    This museum is just an awesome way to spend a day with your kids! There is something for everyone to do & see. From old time cars, to GREAT BIG Dinosaur bones, beautiful gems and mineral galleries. Pan for gems, go to outer space in their planetarium..I could go on & on. Our Grandson is 13 we took him for the first visit at age 8..he wants to go again every couple yrs. Well worth it..clean, friendly and all around GREAT.

    Great place for young and old. Enjoyed the great dinosaurs, vehicles, space, minerals etc. Kids loved the dig and mining area. Cafe was reasonable. The gift store was also very reasonable. Great video on the planetarium watching the stars.

    Great exhibits. Very interesting. Parking is not a problem. Be here early; they close at 5:00 PM.

    Great place. Recommend if you live within a few hours and I say it's worth spending a couple hours to break up your trip along I-75. Great exhibits for all ages.
