Can be finished in ¾ of a day. Great variety of things to do for all ages. Would return, but full Price admission (we paid 1/2 as NC zoo/aquarium members) would be a lot!!

This place was amazing. The staff were all very kind and helpful. The exhibits were all neat and cared for. Children and adults will love this place. Try to go early for greater chances of animal activities.

I didn't expect much when I read that the natural history museum, aquarium and zoo were all in the same building. But this is pretty impressive for one-stop science, and the ticket price is reasonable.

We drove from Raleigh primarily to visit the Bodies Revealed Exhibit. I realize this is a traveling exhibit and will be leaving soon, but we were extremely disappointed. The exhibits were dusty and literally falling apart. If we hadn't seen the original BODIES exhibit several...More

The science center is a great hands on for the little ones. All my grandkids have loved it there. The zoo is fantastic for older ones as there is a lot of walking. Less hands on but more of an educational value.
Hi, how big is the museum? Approximately how long would it take to go around the museum?

Inside and out, I'd say at least 2 hours.
How is parking at the museum? I'm following a school bus in my car and want to make sure I don't have to search for parking? Thanks!
