Such a great museum - I've never seen such a large collection of dinosaur bones/replicas. Really informative. I could've stayed for hours looking at, and reading, the Dino exhibits. The kids thought it was cool but were ready to go way before I was! We also did the planetarium. That was pretty neat as well. A real neat stop on... More

This museum is must see for young families. It's very manageable, informative, and interactive. For the dinosaur lover it's well worth the visit. There are other interesting displays as well, including a history of chocolate and an 1800's house kept in the day. We were short on time, but could have stayed longer.

The museum had a special exhibit on chocolate. We also enjoyed the living history farm outside the museum. Also, large dinosaur and native American exhibit.

This was great. The dinosaur exhibit is interesting. The best part for me was the living farm exhibit. A farm from the late 1800's is peopled with actors in costume and is an actual working farm. I was able to get many of my questions for the historical western romances that I write, answered.

Really enjoyed the visit. You get 2 consecutive days with purchase of a pass. The turn of the 20 century house and farm, with blacksmith & root cellar was educational. My daughters were amazed by the facts they learned. The Dino exhibition was neat. We got to watch volunteers remove dirt from bones. They actually allowed us to handle a... More

Big and little kids will enjoy this museum! We spent the whole day exploring and even caught a planetarium show. Which was included in the admission price. My boys (husband too) had a blast!

The curators of this museum deserve credit for their content and presentation. I had a chance to revisit this museum on a recent trip, and was able to focus on a small part of the dinosaur section as well as go to the new chocolate exhibit. The balance of visuals and content is ideal. Just enough to give you the... More

Anyone with even a remote interest in dinosaurs will not want to miss this topnotch paleontology museum. The displays are interactive, current, interesting and capture the imagination of visitors, whether they are children or adults. In addition to the up-to-date permanent exhibits, special exhibits add variety to the paleontology and historical themes. This is one of the finest museums I... More

If you have said that you don't like museums, then I can only assume that you have never been to THIS one. The historical items and information from planets, to regional information, to dinosaurs is amazing. The caliber of this museum is something you would normally see in a much larger city. It is a true gem!!

Went with my 11 year old grandson and it was extra special. There was a presentation on the cosmos and universe that was one of the best I have ever seen!
