  • My wife and I took a weekend trip down to Tellus science museum. We had a blast. The fossils are amazing, the mineral section was really cool. I loved the periodic table wall, it had an example of all...  more »
  • My son enjoyed the mineral collection and mining activities. The planet roller coaster 3D/VR movie experience was very realistic (made me feel dizzy.) The movies, of course, present from a non-Creatio...  more »

  • 5 Stars to Museum and none to the Planetarium rides show. They just showed one slide of what would be the sky after dark at the museum and the rest was some animation of rides on different planets, total waste of time. Kids may enjoy animation of rides, but no knowledge or information in that Rides show. Please check the available show on line and be on time for the show you want, this specific show I went with out checking is waste. Museum is awesome, kids will have lot of fun and information..
  • My kids and I love this place! It is also a price and takes a few hours to go through. My daughter especially loves the gem mining and dinosaur dig. My son loves the dinosaurs and huge trucks outside. I like the mineral room! Fun place for a family and very educational. We homeschool and this place ties into our lessons in science and history often.
  • My 7 year old son says: "It has lots of science stuff and I love science." They have a fun mix of hands-on activities, as well as mineral, dinosaur and space exhibits.
  • Our family went for free a couple of times. We loved it so much we decided to buy a membership. We love the dinosaurs, fossil dig, gem mining and the backyard area. Tellus is very neat and clean and the staff are knowledgeable, friendly and willing to provide information about the fossils, etc... Such a great hands on experience for the whole family. I had fun designing a ball ramp, and playing with a magnetic dump truck set with our 3 year old son. 🚚
  • It was great because it had awesome fossils Even though I thought they were fake. But I still had a great time
