  • LOVED their Dinosaur's UNEARTHed exhibit. Also great shell collection. Don't forget to go to the top floor to touch some amazing creatures.
  • I have been a member here for 3 years now. I park a few blocks away for a weekend rate of $8. Nice exhibits, with my favorite being the changing exhibits. Tarantulas just finished and Dinosaurs are returning to that exhibit. The staff and volunteers are friendly and knowledgeable . Seating could be more comfortable , except the auditorium .

  • Very cool. The exhibits are very neat. I went for the Restaurant festival. Awesome all you can eat food and drinks for $45. Definitely got my money's worth. Dress for heat though. There were a lot of people and booths cooking, so the temperature was warm. Great time 5 star.
  • fun place. parking is not fun. kids and adults can enjoy together. decent cafe. allow 3 hours minimum. very friendly staff throughout.
  • Very interesting museum with a good range of dinosaur to modern animal fossils and stuffed animals. There are some live exhibits too.
