  • This is a very interesting museum located in a beautiful location. The drive up is scenic even on a wintery day. It was a nice outing for 2 teens on a day off from school. We hadn't been in years and ...  more »
  • If you don't have kids of your own borrow one or two and go play and learn together at this completely fun place to learn a lot --even it you thought you knew it all that.  more »
  • Loved the displays, good for adults and child friendly. Anyone interested in dinosaurs, geology or wishing to increase their knowledge would love this. Liked it so much we purchased a membership.  more »

  • Good place to know about the history of earth. The museum itself strives to mix science with fun activities but is on a somewhat smaller size.
  • Great if you like fossils and dinosaur bones. But that is all they have. Could have had a little more variety.
  • Nice museum, fairly empty the day I visited. Grandson enjoyed playing in the kid area with toy dinosaurs. The ice touching exhibit he also enjoyed. Aimed mainly at older kids, needs a bit more for youngest kids. Nice gift shop. Lovely bones.
  • Amazing place for the size. Love the climate exibit as it gives real perspective about the topic that many do not discuss.
  • Fantastic museum, nicely done arrangements with plenty to offer any age and interest level.
