  • I have been a member for several years, and my wife and I enjoy visiting at least twice a month for a relaxing museum experience.........first rate restaurant and wonderful gift shop. 
  • I've been to this museum a few times and I have always been happy. We have seen the Terra Cotta Warriors and mummies that are thousands of years old. We live in Riverside and it's surprising how quick we can actually get there and back. My 6 year old has a great time while learning. Theres nothing better than that!
  • Mummies round the world was really coolio, but my fav was the islanders exhibition, theys really crazee.
  • Great local museum. Great shows. But still really small. Also has 4 pokestops!
  • Great Mummies of the World Exhibit! Loved it. Need to go back more often & see the exhibits coming up!
  • This is a great small museum. The temporary shows are always worth a look. We've been going since my college-age nephew was 5 or 6 when we went to see Egyptian mummies. Good times.
