“Fun Collection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Our group of kids enjoyed the sights (ages 7-12) and it held their attention for a few hours. Dinosaur and Balto exhibits were really attention getting. Glad we went. Parking was a bit difficult but perhaps if we knew the area better it would have been easier.

“Great for Families with Young Children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

My husband and I recently took our son (8) and daughter(3) to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. I was unsure how it would go over with the 3 year old, but she had just as much fun as her brother. I found the museum very kid friendly, with more hands on items than I expected. We were particularly fond of the small live animal exhibit they have outside. It allowed for a nice break from being inside. All in all, we enjoyed our visit and will definitely consider going back when the next group of traveling exhibits come.

“Borrrrrring!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

I went there with 9 and 10 y old last weekend. Boring expo. Lots of facts just to read off the walls. Dinosores in one room. Sharks in another room. Animal show - that we couldn't stand - more like "one man telling stories about animals". We only stayed for eagle and some rat...
We went through a whole museum in 15 min.
For the price of $12 /adult, $7/kid, $12- parking. VERY expensive wasted weekend.
We ended up leaving and going to Art museum across the street.
