I highly recommend this museum for the whole family. There are things to see and do for all ages. My young child loves the Discovery Zone; they have a large water table, art area, engineering station, read aloud, and a place to dig for fossils. A bonus is the helpful and friendly staff.

Museum has several different areas to view along with an IMAX. Food/drink prices in IMAX were inexpensive. Enjoyed the museum. I wouldn't make. trip here just for the museum, but if you are in the area, I would recommend it.

The museum itself is very nice, with great photo opportunity. They have guided tours and they have educational booths set up if you decide to walk around on your own. 3 floors of exhibits. Great hands on activities for kids.

Would highly recommend IMAX 3D movies and the body/health exhibit as well the wildlife. All the volunteers were so friendly, too! Eat before you come as deli doesn't offer much in regards to healthy snacks.

Disclaimer: we're from Washington, D.C., and have been mightily spoiled by living in the home of the all the national museums. With that said, we were pleased with our visit to this museum, and especially the Mythical Creatures exhibit. This seems like a very good place to take children, too.

Great place to visit for both kids and adults alike. Went there due to it being hot outside. It is also located next to a beautiful park.

This building itself is a beautiful work of art. Inside and out you will find yourself gazing at the structure . The artwork inside is nicely spread throughout the building, allowing you to go at your own pace. There is a gift shop at the entrance with many nice items for gifts and/ souvenirs.

We had a lot of fun exploring the place. We loved the dinosaur show although some small children sat beside us and couldn't handle the 3d dinosaurs and screamed a lot. We didn't have time to see everything but the dinosaurs were super cool.
