  • Educational: Yeah. Enough play area for kids: Not really. Did my kid have fun: Not really, but he did get excited to see dinosaur bones for about 2 seconds. Is it worth the cost: Not really. Also, it Sucks that main attraction is not part of the admission. I came to this place about 3 years ago and the general admission stuff is still the same... My kid had a little fun so it was okay.... I guess.
  • Very fun! I likes that is was interactive. It is more geared to children ( I went with my husband only). If you take time to get passed the fact it's geared towards children you will enjoy!
  • Wonderful interactive displays. My nine year old great-grandson really loved the new dinosaur exhibit. Lots to read about and plenty of grading and hands on stuff!
  • The museum was fun and nice. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The exhibits were clean and interesting. Fun was had for all ages.
  • Love the exhibits, especially of the shells and life in the nearby ocean, and the films. A super-wonderful deal for San Diego residents on the first Tuesday of each month: free admission and $5 to see the films, some of which are in 3D.
