This was a great use of a few hours with a small child. There were a number of well-done exhibits, deep sea, dinosaurs, human anatomy, planets. It was free to visit. The exhibits were interesting to me as an adult as well as my 5-year old. Unfortunately, young children do not always keep maintaining a high-level engagement so we only lasted about 2 hours. At periodic intervals, a worker did a science experiment in the atrium, the one that occurred while we were there was based on meteorology and barometric pressure. My daughter loved it.

I have lived in North Carolina my whole life, and Raleigh is one of my favorite places in the world. I have been visiting this museum since I was a kid, and no matter how many times I go, it still is amazing. I recently just went, now as a college student, with a group of friends. None of them had ever been before, and I insisted that they go with me. They were all amazed by the giant globe when we first walked to the entrance, but they were even more excited once we got inside. The dinosaur exhibits are a personal favorite, and it makes you feel like you are being transported back in time. Being an anthropology and paleontology nerd, the museums collection of specimens in their display room was fascinating. The T-rex skeleton is also a favorite. What makes it even better is that it is all free! Not only that, once you finish at this museum, head right across a courtyard to the History museum, which is also free! They have a really cool exhibit for Sports in North Carolina. They also have to-scale Wright Flyers and two Nascars.

I took my daughter here when she was in elementary school. We went to the science lab and actually did a DNA test! I am sure you can't have a better experience at a museum. History museum is down a block or two
