  • Very intensive lot to see and do and interact with. Start at top floor and work your way down seems less crowded that way. Awesome experience!! Must see  more »

  • Museum is better if you have a membership to take you time and look at the different exhibits. They have 5 different floors each themed with subjects like Anthropology, Geology, Technology, Biology, Human Anatomy among many more. The children's area is alright. I personally like the one at the Fort Worth Museum better but for little kids is alright. They have a sports hall where you can race a T-Rex (T-Rex is on video). The architecture of the building is somewhat interesting, the museum in general has a very open feel to it. It's good for the whole family.
  • Highly interactive. Each level of the building has a unique theme. The science and energy floors were my favorite. Great animations showing the upstream and downstream processes for oil production and processing.
  • This is a really cool place for kids and nerds! Loved their Bio-luminescence exhibits and the regular exhibits are great, too. The building is an exhibit by itself. You will spend about 3-4 hours there and then walk across the street to El Fenix.
  • Very interesting museum. Make sure you go with enough time to really read/interact with all of the exhibits, otherwise it can be a little overwhelming. It is a little on the pricey side, but when we went in (Nov. 2016) we were able to show our BoA cards along with ID and got our general admission for free! It was a great deal. Also, consider riding the train in and walking to the museum to save on parking. I docked a star because a few of the pieces were quite dirty and did not work...I blame this on the HORDE of children swirling around in there. I think it's great that children are getting to experience this place, I just wish they were a little cleaner and kinder to the displays (what a dream).
  • We expected to pay at least $40 for parking and admission, which is fine I guess. The museum was cool, the exhibits were interesting and the staff was nice.We went to eat and it was ridiculously overpriced. I'm not usually a picky person, but my college cafeteria had better quality food. There were only 3 of us, and we ended up spending $45 for our food and drinks. For a comparison, our bill at In-n-Out was $28, it was a higher quality, and there were 4 of us instead of 3. Anyways, we ended up spending $97 at the museum, and that doesn't include things from the gift shop. So if you're planning on going, make sure you eat before or be prepared to spend twice as much as you should on some not-so-good food and drinks.
