  • We had a wonderful time and our grandchildren did as well, unfortunately until we came to the 2 turtles, they are inadequately housed. The box turtle should be in a larger aquarium and I forget the name of the other turtle which is about 12" being house in about a 15 gallon tank, It is cruel for him, he barely has room to turn around. If you are going to house animals they must be housed in an environment to which they are accustomed. Both of these turtles are being housed improperly and especially the large one is really very cruel. I will share my experience with the proper managers and with an agency that can evaluate the turtles environment. We were told that in less than 1 month we were the 3 rd people to share this with staff. And yet the turtles are still being housed improperly. I expected more from this museum for animal care. and will not return unless these corrections are made.
  • There was basically nothing to look at. We paid 14 dollars per person to walk through something that lasted 10 minutes. The museum was so beautiful on the outside that I was expecting so much more. With all of the free culture that there is to experience in this city my 28 dollars was completely wasted on this place.
  • My 5 year old had ton of fun building dino skeleton puzzles, looking at bugs live and dead, as well as checking out the live reptiles. The exhibit was a wealth of fun information and activities inside for kids. I think the adults enjoyed the main exhibit more than the kids but it's a great place! So fun. It's a bit pricey for a museum though. If we didn't have coupons we probably never would have visited.
  • I don't get it, is a overpriced commercialized "museum". The only saving grace could be the science center upstairs if your kids are in the right age group and you don't mind paying $13 for adults who aren't going to do anything.
  • The dinosaur exhibit is really cool. Both my 17mo and 4 yr olds had a lot of fun touching everything and digging for fossils.
