  • The museum features many exhibits with little interaction or much to see. You could do the entire museum in less than an hour. If you have time to kill in Mesa, this is something I would recommend.  more »

  • Great place for children and/or adults. Much to see and read, even a small theatre playing videos, and it's ok to bring your camera so we took lots of pictures. We liked the dinosaurs best, with the m...  more »

  • A fun, interactive natural history museum, particularly fun for children. Yes, it's small and the mornings can be quite crowded with school groups, but they have great exhibits with knowledgeable folks around. Go in the afternoon and you will miss the crowds. My 3 yr old lil girl LOVES this place and we go weekly. If you or your little one like dinosaurs or geology, you will enjoy your time here.
  • Don't let the small building fool you. The museum has more exhibits than those twice it's size. The interactive exhibits for kids is perfect from the panning for gold and digging for dinosaur bones to putting together various levels or pottery and maps of South America. Fun for all ages. Be sure to watch the flash flood.
  • Excellent museum! Large display of dinosaurs including interactive areas for the delight of kids! Reasonable prices students (13 n up) get discount presenting valid school ID.
  • I grew up going here in the 80's and loved it. Taking my children is a treat. The dinosaurs and fossils are awesome! Great museum for kids. About the only things left from the 80's era is the jail and the old safe they encouraged people to try and open.
  • Went to the even "Beer & Bones". Excellent experience. Many different local brewerys offering their beer and beer tasting. Upgraded tickets $40 option. Got beer passport with 6 beer samples, one beer ticket for a glass and one food item ticket for pizza salads and other foods. Came with a beer and bones glass as well. Great time !
