  • It was a pleasant surprise. I can not wait to visit once the planned updates are complete.
  • Absolutely love this place, have been going here since I was 6 years old. I'm glad I can bring my daughter's here and they enjoy it as much as I do.
  • Great world class exhibits. Natural and human history, modern and Western art, special exhibitions, now one on the photography of Russell Lee from his 1940 New Deal FSA photography of Pie Town, New Mexico and much more. It captivated David and I for a good 2 hours.
  • Excellent exhibits! Went with a private school and the children enjoyed the time. I will be going back with my husband to enjoy more. đŸ˜„
  • Great place for a family day! Staff is very helpful and friendly. They use the space they have very well and, I am always excited to go!
