  • This is an exceptional natural history museum. One of the best educational experiences on the various eras of earth's history I have ever experienced. This is a museum that will stick with me. The paleontological specimens are also superb.
  • Kind of a hidden gem! Been visiting Ithaca from Syracuse for years and didn't know this place existed until last year. Coolest place in upstate for fossils! My 4 year old love it and so did my husband and I. Wish we weren't running through because there was a lot of information to read. Was kind of bummed that most of the fossils were only casts but still interesting none the least. Definitely make a stop here if you have not before. You won't be disappointed!
  • Interesting museum covering all geological time periods. Not super in depth but a good amount of information. Good educational videos as well. Recently renovated and it looks like they're getting some new exhibits. A great way to spend the afternoon learning.
  • Great size museum for less than two hour visit.
  • Interesting place. Worth a visit.
