  • great place to spend a couple hours to learn about our state. lots of fossils and interesting information. we also attended a laser show at the planetarium - I definitely enjoyed doing something different. the view of that stadium is also exceptional. the only reason I am giving 4 stars, is because it could use a little updating.
  • A future paleontologist dream day. Our son loves every inch of this museum. He has a huge appreciation for dinosaurs and science. We enjoy attending special events they put on.
  • Great place. Spend time reading and learning not just looking. Awesome
  • Really neat museum. The mammoth hall is amazing. A lot of interesting stuff. A great value and lots to see and some pretty cool interactive areas for children (or young at heart).
  • A really cool place to bring your family for a few hours of learning. Really awesome displays.
