What it lacks in budget and space, it makes up for with great staff, interactive programs, and creativity. Kids will love the dinosaurs, and visitors of all ages will appreciate the very well done Egyptian exhibit and aquariums. Look for discount coupons on the internet, and check the Museum’s website for their schedule of traveling exhibits and free family friendly... More

Our family had a blast at the Natural History Museum just a short drive from the Stratosphere. Who knew our 3 year old could spend over 2 hours in a museum! He loved the dinosaurs and got to pet live iguana and a snake. Best part was all the hands-on activities for kids. A must see for families with young... More

We enjoyed our visit with our 2 & 4 year old boys. The staff was friendly and many of the exhibits were hands on and great for kids. Although some of the exhibits were older or lower budget, as other reviewers had mentioned, I felt that the emphasis was always on things being educational and they succeeded. My kids learned...

This is our second trip to this lovely museum. We had brought our grandchildren this time and they loved it...especially the Egyptian exhibit. They had a great time looking at all the fish exhibits and making the dinosaur's roar. Imagine my surprise when I got back to Vermont and heard a voicemail from Linda at the Museum that they had...

It is much larger on the inside with a second story basement level. Definitely enough to do for a couple of hours. Live animals including a shark hatchery, snake and sharks. There is an exhibit about Egypt and one about Africa as well as animatronic dinosaurs, fossils and rocks. Fun and educational. 😃

Nice small museum, seeing all the animals up close was interesting, $25 for a family of 3 for about 2 hours is good. Dinosaurs are ok for younger kids, seen better repliicas. Egypt displays were interesting. My 10 year old enjoyed it, but younger kids would have more fun especially if they get to play in the playground on site.

There is a lot to see here. There are hands exhibits with video and/or vocal programs. The exhibits include an African safari with setting and examples of animals. The African rain forest lights up to explain each section. The prehistoric life exhibit has a lot of examples and good explanations. The Egyptian exhibit was originally at the Luxor Hotel and...

Enjoyed the museum. Exhibits were well done. The toddler loved the children's area where there was lots of hands on things. My personal favorite was the aquarium and submarine

We spent an enjoyable two-plus hours here on a weekday in early December. This isn’t an especially modern museum, but as a couple in our early 50s with no kids, this place held our attention and kept us occupied. Right after entering the museum, there was a large room to the right with taxidermied animals, some of which were old... More
