  • Burpee is not going to compete with places like the Field or the Museum of Science and Industry n Chicago but it punches way above it's weight in comparison to other local science museums. They do it ...  more »

  • This is a fantastic Museum. Anybody who complains about the price is stuck in 1950 and has no clue what goes on at a museum behind the scenes. You can bring a family of four here and spend five hours for less than 25 dollars. Also, they keep safe - and allow access to - tens of thousands of preserved plants/animals/remains. The parking is the best I've ever experienced for a museum.
  • Best museum ever! High quality displays, very nice staff, and just all around happiness! I especially enjoy the Homer exhibit. The highest floor is one of my favorites. All of those cool animals, some even living!
  • It's nice. But...It's too small and lacking for the price. Admission shouldn't be more then $5 for adults and free-$3 for children, you're a museum and a learning center for children held at a higher standard of integrity profit should not be your goal nor incentive to exist and operate. Just saying. Sincerely, Rockford resident. P.s. Taxation is theft :-)
  • We were pleasantly surprised by the well made exhibits. They were very informative and well written. There is a very interesting history of this museum which made the experience much more impressive.
  • Very nice museum of Natural History. Lots to see and learn. Jane the dinosaur is cool to see and learn about. Discovered where they work on digging out bones in the basement. Fascinating! Learned about Geological history of Rockford too.
