I was surprised by how much is contained in the museum. I found it to be very interesting and I would go there again. Good collections.

There is so much to see that it's an all day trip. We didn't get there until 1:30 pm and didn't get to experience all the areas before they closed. The day pass allows you to leave and come back in. I would suggest taking a break and get lunch. I loved the time lines they have to help you... More

We stopped here on our way from Oklahoma City returning home to Iowa. It was not on our list of things to do, we look for things as we travel. My husband, 10 year old daughter and myself. We all enjoyed this Museum. I highly recommend stopping here. Educational and interesting. We were in awe at a lot of things... More

My son and I were passing through and decided to stop at this local museum. We found it on trip advisor and decided to give it a shot. Glad we did. It was very very informative especially on the world war aspects and dinosaurs. My son had a blast and it was awesome to teach him things about history. Definitely... More

I loved our visit to this museum. The tour guides are very informative and there is so much to see and read about. I came across about 3 activity stations which were awesome! They have many more activity stations where you can test your knowledge on what you've read or just know period. Kids will definitely love it because they... More

Was pleasantly suprized. It had a wide variety of different exhibits, from dinosaurs to hall of President's, from mummies to exhibits of the wars. It was a day well spent with the family.

This is a moderate sized museum with a good variety of different cultures, the exhibits seem to stay the same, but many interesting sights to behold.

This was a very nice and eclectic collection. My favorite sections were the ancient artifacts (Egyptian, Greek, etc.) along with the WWI, WWII, Korean and Vietnam War collections on the 2nd floor. There's something for everyone here, young and old alike.

What a treasure! This museum was fantastic. Well laid out and the staff was very helpful. We lucked out and were there on customer appreciation day. Admission was only $3 and there were tons of activities and docents to assist in the museum. My 5 year old was very excited to meet a real paleontologist. We can't say enough about... More
