I took my nephew thinking it would be a great trip down memory lane, and to see all the updates since it's been 20 years. unfortunately almost nothing's changed, it's very dirty, and we were in and out it about 30 minutes. My nephews only 8 and he was bored.

Unless you have really young kids like 5 and under there's not much to see. The exhibits seem old and dated wouldn't recommend going again.

I took my 2 year old grandson during the holiday break and he had fun. Older, apparently unsupervised, kids overwhelmed him a bit, so we spent a lot of time in the quieter dinosaur area, brushing the sand for bones and colouring pictures. It was a good, active, morning for him. But...the museum hasn't been updated since I took my... More

I am a member so I go regularly. It is true that this place could use some basic maintenance. If everything was in good working order it would be truly awesome. That being said it is still a lot of fun for the kids and there are tons of things to do. There are various themed rooms to move around... More

I had heard great things from other people about this museum and was excited to take my daughters, 3 + 6. While my daughters had a nice morning and say they would like to return, I was disappointed by the state the building is it. It is very tired, and needs a lot of basic repairs done. The paint is...

I brought my daughters, aged 3 and 5, to this museum one Thur morning. It was quite a disappointment. Although there were a few exhibits to enjoy, the Arctic section as well as the Dinosaur section, every other part was in need of serious repair and cleaning. The items the children would play with were missing, incomplete or non-functioning. In... More
