“Best place in town for kids to spend a few hours.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

This museum is in an old power plant. Much of the old equipment is still in place (on exhibit in original use location). Many marvelous exhibits for children - 4 to 12 especially. And outside is a tented cafe serving great lunches.

“Worth the money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Good way to kill a couple hours downtown. Had a 6 and 8 year old girl, were happy to spend 2+ hours there. Not much for adults to do but watch though.

Because my son helped build this museum, I have watched it go from what it was to what it is. Congratulations Durango another winner!

“Good value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

We brought our nearly two-year-old to pass some time on a warm morning. She was engaged and happy, and the day-long pass was great.

“be prepared to open the wallet!”

pretty expensive for a family! Might have been entertaining for the 7 year old, but the adults got bored quickly!
