  • I really enjoyed this museum. What a nice surprise in this quaint town. I spent about 3 hours walking through exhibits and learning about Kansas millions of years ago under water. The museum's namesak...  more »
  • This museum is a favorite, and anytime a trip across Kansas puts us in proximity to Hays when the museum is open (and we can spare the time), I like to stop for a visit. What’s not to love? There’s ov...  more »
  • I visited the Sternberg Museum twice over a six month period (July and December of 2017) with my six year-old. The museum is cool: the main exhibit is a dome with animatronic dinosaurs. This is easily...  more »

  • My grandson had his 1st birthday party here. I am from out of state so I've never been here. It was fun. Staff was very interactive in the toor and the children were taught about the animals and were even able to handle a few. Lots of fun here!
  • An awesome museum with everything you need to know about Mesozoic life forms from T-Rex to the Triassic. Has a good gift shop also.
  • A lot of fossils and minerals to see. Amazing to find out that Kansas was once all under water.
  • We needed a break while driving from Denver to Topeka. This looked like more than the usual roadside stop. It turned out to be an excellent museum featuring the natural history of central Kansas. Exhibits featured live reptiles in terrariums, dioramas showing what was in the area millions of years ago, and life size replicas of dinosaurs, including an animated T rex. A discovery room provides hands-on learning. We had to hit the road after 45 minutes, and we'll go back. Admission was $7 for seniors 60 and over, and well worth it.
  • Great spot, perfect place for the kids to stretch their legs on a long drive. Impressive for the price and just a wonderful setup. Nice museum all the way around
