  • It's not the Chicago field museum, but I did not expect that. Lots of fun dinosaur exhibits and it was a lot of fun taking my grandson to see them. If you are thinking about going to see one of the traveling dinosaur shows with your kids, get a membership here instead. The price is low, the quality is high. You really won't regret it.
  • My kids and I absolutely love this museum. It may be on the smaller side, but it is jam packed with tons of cool things to see. Lots of fun interactive exhibits for all ages. Highly recommend. And their beer n bones event is a fantastically good time! Don't pass this place up!
  • Loved the exhibits. I went here for the first time since I was in elementary school and it was definitely different. There is a lot of interesting information posted along the displays, and the exhibits are cool to see. However, I wish they had something for the adults, too. It felt like everything was geared towards young children, which did lead to some bored adults.
  • This museum is a terrific place for family. The museum has recently updated their displays, and they are awesome. The dinosaur displays are amazing, and there are a lot of hands on activities.
  • Many interesting exhibits to see. Several large dinosaurs, as well as a room devoted to flying ones. In the lobby their are several impressive ice age animals including: mammoth, mastadon, American lion, and horses. Really enjoyed the selection of Native American pottery and art, as well as large displays of traditional living quarters. Several interactive areas for kids as well. Easy to spend a few hours checking out all they have to offer.
