  • Great natural collection of static and living (indoor and outdoor) artifacts and cultures. Great day trip for young children and very educational for older children. 
  • Greeting you as you enter is a T- Rex! The planetarium is a wonderful opportunity to see our planet in a different way. The exhibits on the lower levels of the native americans, are so real. The animals - elk, moose, polar bear, fox, buffalo, etc, are not stuffed, but mounted. When I asked if they were true to size, yes! An eye opener for sure. You realize then why these large animals where Hunter for food and cl I85 thing. Up close and personal. The landing on Mars - Rover is icing on a wonderful, learning experience. The staff is wonderful.
  • Love this museum! Both the inside and outside exhibits are great to check out. I especially loved the rock mining area out on the trail!
  • This is a very cool place to come for a show and stroll. It's fairly small and I'm not sure I would visit often.
  • Great museum of natural history. They also have some good, freely available trails that include a historical village with farm animals.
  • Very nice displays and facilities, a lot of variation, interesting exhibits, natural trail is great with cool features, although the village and all buildings on trail have been locked closed both times we have gone there. We were happy with this place as well as educated and entertained. We will definitely return, you can spend hours there.
