I was in town for a week and had a day off and decided to give this attraction a try. It is three floors filled with all different kinds of items. I think that's what I enjoyed the most about this muesuem was how different the exhibits were. I was able to get through everything in about an hour and... More

This was a great place. We had time off and wanted to do something. This was perfect. Not the average afternoon sightsee.

Who knew one building could contain so many antiquities and artifacts from mummies right up through Civil War memorabilia. It is not expensive and has three floors worth of wonderful things to see! I highly recommend it. Did you know there used to be an ocean in the middle of the United States and you can find fossils of large... More

Great for adults and kids alike. A bit pricey but lots of fascinating stuff to browse. Nartural history, ancient world artifacts and US war exhibits from revolutionary through Viet Nam are impressive.

Visited here on a whim and was surprised. Family was looking for an activity for a day and we came here on a reduced admission day. What I found inside blew my mind. There was so much inside! The outside is deceiving, there are many worlds to explore. Some of it was geared for the mature crowd but there was... More

I actually visited on January 1, 2015 but the site wouldn't yet allow 2015 months. Anyhow, I read a few other reviews before posting mine. The museum has listened to past visitors' reviews! They have added interactive children's stations and are building a whole children's discovery area, although that looks like it won't be ready for a few months. Also,... More

The Museum was a joy for the adults to experience and had a wealth of knowledge . The children 10 and under were very bored until the third floor. We partook in the questionnaire for each age group and that became a chore to keep up with because each question strayed from one another so much. The building is confusing... More

Not the largest museum collection I've seen. It was small, but nice. I spent an interesting hour or so browsing the displays. There was a nice variety from several different cultures and time periods.

We first saw the beginnings of this museum years ago as an "exhibit" at Century II Concert Hall. We had just ourselves returned from a trip to Egypt the previous year, so we were amused at the doctor's fascination with Egyptian mummies, as well as his collection of Dinosaur bones. At that point in time, we had a toddler. Over... More
