When we were there they had the dinosaur exhibits along with an outstanding chocolate exhibit and exhibits on local vehicles and a typical balloon construction house with cut away sections and a section devoted to the Plains Indians. Something for everybody. The docent/guides are knowledgeable and do an exceptional job of presenting information in a way that is both entertaining... More

Dinosaur bone and skeletons and some nice walk though displays. This would be good for the whole family! We also saw a show in the planetarium and had a very nice afternoon wandering around! Wish they had more space for the dinosaur bones as their collection is much bigger then what is on display.

Very informative as to how the state was formed millions of years ago and how there came to be so many dinosaur bones. I learned a lot, well worth the price of admission.

Great place to take your kids. We could easily spend a whole day at the museum. Loved the movies in the super cool planeterium. Liked the variety of things to look at, but the dinosaurs were the favorite.

Great little museum with one of the best dinosaur exhibits I have seen. Interesting gift shop with good selection of children's books.

Many of the exhibits were for dinosaurs recently discovered (in the 2000's). We thought they were done finding bones but apparently they're still finding new species. We learned so much about burrowing dinosaurs, feathered dinosaurs, flying dinosaurs, etc. The planetarium show was not very good. Way over our heads. There is a working farm and the only two story log... More

Great museum to take kids (and grandchildren!). The dinosaurs are a big hit; the children's area is somewhere to spend a lot of time. The shop is great for gifts.

Fantastic museum for dinosaur lovers. My grandson was wowed by the new T-Rex exhibit. The planetarium is always fun and interesting. Great hands-on exhibits for kids.

This is a wonderful museum. They have special exhibits that are rotated regularly. The Taylor Planetarium is modern and the shows and lectures are great. I would highly recommend including this on your "to do" list
