  • 2nd visit, if you don't like crowds this is the place to visit! People there are very friendly The whole museum is very clean! 
  • It's a great smaller museum. Perfect size for a young family. It took us about two hours. Friendly staff, lots to see. 
  • Museum did a great job of organizing a merit badge program. The class started and finished on time. Boys learned some new things. Nice job! 
  • My parents came in from WI with my niece and nephew and spent the afternoon here. Admission prices were reasonable, exhibits were interesting, and they highly recommend it to others.
  • It's easier for me to learn about something I know very little in a small, well-run museum liike The Burpee. The dinosaur exhibits are spectacular. I even ended up going to help on the dino dig at Ekkalaka. 'ut
  • Fun location for someone needing to do an afternoon. Along the Rock River, and connected to a larger complex for learning and entertainment, the museum itself is a lot of fun.
  • The museum is awesome. If you've not been you need to go. It is small, but so excellent!
  • Amazing exhibits and dioramas! Travelled from Iowa to catch an ancients seas exhibit, but was impressed by the whole museum. Only had time to explore half of it, so we will have to return. Perminent exhibits that really impressed us: juvenile T-Rex Jane, Homer's wall of triceratops, and the Carboniferous diorama (which was like a giant seek find.)
