This natural history museum has something to offer for just about everyone. One of my favorites is the Prehistoric Journey Exhibit. From dinosaurs to wooly mammoths, it takes visitors on a walk through history. There are interactive elements for younger visitors. I think one of my favorite aspects is that there is a window where you can see paleontologists working... More

Most of the time I go to the museum it is with a school group or out of town guests. We have seen some fascinating temporary exhibits such as the Titanic, but without these special events the museum is still pretty good.

This is a special place where kids get a great look at all manner of science. From the space center to the alpine grasses and bird habitats, the exhibits are keyed for all manner of observers. There is an Imax theater there, as well as speakers nearly every day. The admission is quite reasonable. I guarantee there will be something... More

Wonderful attraction for young and old. Went with my grandsons and daughter's family. We all enjoyed it immensely and learned a lot about the world around us. Be sure to leave at least 4 hours to visit and this will only be a start to see what's available.
