“Great place for family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

You can see big dinosaurs outside museum. It' s great for pics. Inside have a special place for kids with play area. A big whale skelet, stuffed tigers and lions and a python devouring a capybara are the highlights. I can see everything in one day or even in the middle period of the day.

“Fun way to spend a couple of hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We visited the museum on a very cold and snowy day in early November. It was a good way to spend a couple of hours going back in time. The museum has something for everyone - dinosaurs, geological exhibits, fossils, even some medical specimens.

The museum also has a cafe and small gift shop. The bathrooms are easy to find and navigate.

I enjoyed my time and recommend it particularly for families with children.

“Great visit, amazing discoveries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The museum is huge and there's a lot of things I've never seen in any other natural history museum (even in NY...). The anatomy area is amazing, it's worth it!

“ATaxidermist's Dream”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Some interesting viewing but overall this museum needs a boost ofinteractivity. Looks like nothing has changec here in more than 30 years. Great taxiderm bird display and butterflies. The taxiderm animals in huge glass showcases was interesting but lacked imagination. Cafe good to eat and good value. Worth a quick visit only.
