This Museum is a do not miss when visiting Mesa, Arizona. My husband and I visited last year and enjoyed every moment. It was very busy but the displays are setup so that there is no crowding around the larger sets. Some of the animatronic sets are on a time schedule, so be sure to wait to see them. This is definitely a place to bring kids.

Visited when "Sue" was in the lobby. As soon as you walked in the door one was greeted by her happy smile.

This museum was wonderful with all the displays of different types of dinosaurs from bugs to huge dinosaurs. There were stories of where they lived in Western U.S.A. and some from other areas Great displays in their habitat. Also an abundance of Indian information along with their life, their culture and differences between the tribes of the Americas. You will see beautiful leather and beaded dresses and tops and pants for the leaders of the tribe; baskets, dishes, woven mats, displays of homes and caves that the Indian tribes lived in. This is a half to all day visit and take lots of pictures. This really shows the culture of the Indians in very early Southwest.
