Great displays of New Mexico and more natural History. We have been a couple of times and enjoyed it both times.

The museum was totally filled with interesting exhibits, including a hands-on living critter room. The dinosaurs exhibit, the volcano exhibit and others kept the attention of the young ones and old ones in our party. Walking through a volcano with special effects, the Seismosaurus and the Pentacerotops were highlights! A planetarium and DynaTheater are available for additional fees.

When my nephew was 4, he LOVED dinosaurs. When he came to visit from Pennsylvania, this museum was a "must visit". Was he ever thrilled to have his picture taken to the life sized models of the "giant reptiles"! He also loved going through the cave and the inside of the volcano.

As a teacher of elementary school aged children, I assure you my classes were always enthralled as well on field trips to the museum. It sure is better than just reading about the history of life and geological features on Earth!

This is a fun place to visit and they have some good movies also. It is affordable and just the right size to visit in an afternoon.

We just drove around the museum since it was closed on Monday the day we went. It was beautiful, and everything is so clean. Thank you.
