The museum had a lot for children but our group of adults enjoyed it also. The animal exhibits were beautiful and the space exploration section was interesting.

A great place to take out of towners who have children. Many interactive exhibits for kids. However, it lacks interest of adults.

The descriptions available online for this place don't quite explain it all. This is a museum of natural history and science coupled with a planetarium and an IMAX theatre. The admission fee depends upon the combination of the above that you wish to visit. I...More

We actually signed up this year to be members. We always love the exhibits and the IMAX. This year was no different as we were able to see the Dead Sea Scrolls. It was AMAZING.

Loved the Imax “Jerusalem” that tied in nicely with the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit. A bit pricey but very nice!

My daughter and I loved this museum. It was very interactive and well designed. It was crowded, but the design of the museum allowed to move and explore freely experiencing all the wonderful exhibits.

They do rent small lockers for coats, purses, backpacks, etc inside the North Entrance. Don't know if that would be adequate for your "luggage". Probably would be best for you to contact the museum directly with your... More
