The animatronic dinos were pretty cool. This musem is a good place for kids to run wild in its open spaces. Its a great escape on a weekend or week day. Check out the musem every first Sunday of the month when its free admission day to get your full value! Just show that you are a New Mexico resident and you are in!

This is a great little museum with several very nice exhibits. A strong emphasis on dinosaurs. Staff were very helpful and genuinely seemed to enjoy talking about the various exhibits. It cost about $8.00 per adult and was well worth it. I would definitely recommend.

Very informative and well laid out. Not expensive and they will validate your car parking so that is a plus. Definately worth a visit

Everything to like, and nothing to dislike. Handicapped friendly. Numerous LIFE sized specimens. A wonderful journey through Earth's turbulent billion year history. Plan to stay several hours!
