“Enjoyable time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

While it wasn't quite like the movie with Ben Stiller, there are many interesting exhibits to see. Fun for all ages. Combining you experience with the planetarium is a must.

“Go early!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

We found this museum to be very well run and laid out. With four levels filled, make sure you take time to see it all. Some of the lesser populated areas had the better stuff (stay away from the T-Rex area is you dislike crowds!). I especially liked the photos from the Apollo missions in the Rose Center for Earth and Space on the first floor.

“.... so much to see, so little time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

I came here on the weekend with my family. There are so many interesting things to see and do it would take many days to cover the whole museum. We signed up for all of the shows/activities available on the day we went. If I went back another time, I would not sign up for so many things as we seemed to always be running from place to place rather than enjoying the area of the museum we were in. The restaurant in the lower level has an amazing variety of tasty food available, not just the typical pizza and burgers -- be careful though as it gets expensive when you pay by the quarter pound.
