Loved this place when my daughter was little. Family Day is best because it's free and there are lots of relevant and fun activities. My teen still remembers digging for dinosaurs and making a model. The museum has a great collection of artifacts as well.

My children visited this museum with their school. It is very small but the guides presented it well and made it fun. Everything is geared towards palentology and the have a repleca of a dinosaur footprint the kids can sit it; they loved it.

This museum is on the grounds of the Webb school and is only open certain hours so check before you go. It is small but has some very nice exhibits for a private museum. They also offer educational classes and summer school mini classes here.

FREE every Wednesday, Parking is FREE. $3 per person, 4 and under FREE. No strollers, but they have parking station for them.

My toddler and I enjoyed the museum. My toddler favorite things were the dinosaurs, downstairs they have a discovery section that you pull down a lever to hear the sound of a dinosaur, looking at the mirror and comparing the size of himself to the dinosaur, and digging for fossils.

This is a 1-2 hour museum. Not crowded.

What we did to make it a day was go to Memorial Park in Claremont and had a picnic lunch - they have a wading pool for the kids during the summer months from 11:30am - 1:30pm. After lunch headed over there.
