We ate here out of necessity during our visit. Normally we would've brought our lunch. The prices were not too high and the food was pretty good.

Not a bad museum cafe. They have several options from salad bar, typical cafe fair like burgers and fries and things like quesadillas. If you are visiting the museum this is a good stop for lunch.

We stopped by during our trip to the museum. Unfortunately, we ended up during the busiest time of day so we didn’t wait to order a bison burger. They have plenty of “Grab’n’Go” food though, so you don’t have to wait in line if you...More

This is not your usual museum cafe. Huge, long salad bar with more than items than you would expect. They also do sandwiches and pizza. Best thing was their dining area was huge. Lot's of tables and chairs. Everything was very clean.
