  • Very nice museum. Great kids area. Love the dinosaurs and minerals and earth system exhibits. I find the sliced, plasticized people a bit creepy but I guess it's pretty neat? My kid loves the small sports area where you can race people and animals sprinting. He likes trying against the T. Rex.
  • Worth the expense for a day trip with family. There's a great area for toddlers but the majority of the museum is more aged to 5 years+. As an adult I love it too. There's tons of learning and discovering! My 6 year old loves the dinosaur fossils and the earthquake simulator.
  • We had so much fun here. We started out with the dinosaur 3D movie which was really cool and a short 20 minutes. Then we headed off to each of the floors to see what was in store. This place has everything - hands on creation, robots, cars, lasers, the body, animals, space, dinosaurs, etc. You could use a machine to view your veins in your hand, you had a display that showed a sliced human which was awesome and disturbing at the same time. There was a robot that one of the employees was moving about. He told us that this robot allowed him to take a child, who is stuck in the hospital and too sick to travel, on a virtual tour of the whole museum as well as interact with the child in real time. Also each floor has brainiacs, which are employees who have all the knowledge on the exhibits to the floor. They give you insights and back ground info that isn't included in the exhibits. This place is fun for all ages. Our family ranged from 62 to 7 yrs old and we all had a good time.
  • The museum itself is wonderful. We enjoyed the dinosaurs, space, sports, and life halls. The minerals were very beautiful and exciting for my children. The staff isn't very friendly or helpful outside of the concierge who was very nice. They seem like they don't like their jobs and are annoyed by visitors.
  • Fantastic employees are always so kind and helpful! I had both of my little boys in the cafe and someone helped me to my table, got a high chair, and when the baby dumped our pizza on the ground he went to get a new one! Love this place. Always clean
