  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • A little too kiddy for my liking. But it does spark the interest of the next generation.
  • Some interesting items... but has a long way to go. Needs less displays and more video clips and interactive stations.
  • We had our wedding reception here and it was so awesome!! Such a unique venue and all of our guests loved it. It was perfect for dancing and people had fun interacting with the exhibits too. The staff was also great to work with. It was the perfect venue for our event!
  • Yes the Earth is more than 10,000 years old, and it's fascinating. Highlight of our visit was our 8 year old daughter getting to actually touch a fossilized dinosaur bone that was being cleaned.
