The activities here are geared toward children, and children love them. They also have special exhibits that are of interest to people of all ages. The Omni theater is located in the museum.

Very educational and fun events for the younger kids. Indoor and outdoor activities that can keep them entertained for at least 3 hours. The planetarium also has Sesame Street viewing for the kids!! We got there too late to see that one though. We will be coming back on our next visit!!

Most of this museum is geared toward kids. If you have someone that is not used to walking a lot, be sure to take a walker with a chair, or just a wheelchair. Get your bearings before leaving the front, otherwise you will feel like a pinball bouncing from place to place and not really seeing anything like we did.... More

My then 12 year old daughter and I went during a staycation weekend. We were both enthralled with all of the activities. It was inexpensive and interactive. I definitely recommend it for families!

My husband and I visited the museum as we'd never been. I had visited the Cattle Ranching section of the museum several years ago with my parents, but had never been to the rest of the museum. The cattle ranching section is very well done, unfortunately isn't maintained as well as it should be - only two of the automated... More

This is a return visit and well worth it. So many things have changed, been added, and improved. I really can't find anything wrong with our visit. We visited on a Thursday and it was a little busy but there was plenty to do and the staff was friendly and kept kids busy with all of the many things available.... More

We spent a good part if a day here and could have spent more time. We loved the outdoor building area but felt that the water area could use more shade and more seating for parents in both areas. The kids liked the planetarium, when they could hear what was being said. A lady and her husband brought their toddlers... More

I loved that the museum had a private nursing area, however there's not much here for adults. It would be great for preschoolers and young elementary aged kids.
