What a great place to experience Midland. Local plays, Broadway plays and teenage talent too. The museum is always changing. Stop at the gift shop for extraordinary gifts, even meals to go! What more could you want.

Loved this place. We specifically went for the dinosaurs, not realizing how much more their was to do. A lot of hands on exhibits for the kids. Also made it a fun learning experience.
