  • I had not been to this musuem since the 1980s. The staff are friendly and helpful. The dinosaur exhibit and dig activites for kids are amazing. A really enjoyable family experience. I will say, grab a map! This place is a maze!
  • There is an amazing collection of cool exhibitions. From the gems of Earth, to the dinosaur fossils, to the representations of ecosystems and scenes. I spent three hours there and was unable to visit everything.
  • My enjoyed all my visits to the museum. It has a very relaxing atmosphere. I will visit again when I have the time.
  • This was a really wonderful getaway for our family while we were temporarily transplanted to the area. We spent many a Saturday here and had a great time. There were things of interest for my hubby and I, obviously, but there were activities for our 1 year old son to take part in, too.
  • One of the best dinosaur exhibits in the country. And the membership prices are well worth it so I can just stop by anytime the kiddo is in a museum mood.
