Really liked the underground displays! Clever and informative!
Also liked the spiral walk-way and the life-like representatives of the area.

This museum is so well-organized and informative and has just enough interactive features that kids are kept involved throughout. You learn about the Yellowstone basin and kids can get "passports" stamped at various stations which keeps them engaged. Lots of exhibits say "please touch." I want to return, actually, without kids, there is so much to learn.

This is a very nice museum as part of the Buffalo Bill Museum. They have many inactive displays for the kids and if your lucky you might be able to see some special displays that are not part of the permanent displays.

The exhibits are imaginative, informative, and enjoyable. What more could you want for a museum? One of the BBHC's 5 museums, the Draper is TOP quality as are the other 4. Take your time and you will need another day to even take in MOST of the Draper plus, plus, plus. The museum staff is enthusiastic and helpful, too.

Kids loved all the interactive buttons and carrying around the 'passport' to show they visited all the areas.
