“Over and over again!”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

My grandkids are always begging to go to the Pink Palace. Full of interesting things of all sorts. We love the IMAX shows, the rocks and gems, the history exhibits and just have a good time together. It's not a don't touch, be quiet kind of place which is good for the kids.

“Neat museum”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

Piggly Wiggly display always makes me smile. Also the animated circus. Make sure you find the shrunken head.

“Amazed”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

This place provides amazing experience for our group. For example, original model of piggly wiggly, circus, animal and human evolution, types of stones, and how earthquake occurs. I would highly recommend for family with children. We went there at 1 pm on Tuesday and it was admission free (also free parking).
