  • First visit with 5-yo grandson & he had a big time. Despite being there 20 years or so, it’s well-kept with numerous exhibits for a variety of interests - Dinos, transportation through the years...

  • This is a cool place, we like coming here year around. I appreciate them constantly changing the exhibits and bringing in new items. I'm my opinion they have the best mineral exhibit in the country.

  • My family loves this place. We have a membership so we can go when we want, the dinosaurs are awesome and the "backyard" area is amazing for kids of all ages, it will keep them engaged and entertained. The staff is helpful and friendly for the most part, and the food in the cafeteria is better than I would expect. No, it isn't a 5 star restaurant, but it also is less expensive than typical concession food while being at least as good, in some cases better.
  • This is one of my favorite museums. Maybe because I’m a huge Dino fan! They not only have the Dino’s but a big aerospace section. Star Wars fan? They have The Science of Star Wars on May 4th. Expect to spend 4 hrs or more here! So much to look at and do! Very kid friendly. They have cool interactive things for ages 5 and up to play with and explore. Clean! Well maintained. Affordable. Adults $17 Children $13 Seniors $15 Members can go free. Active Military free They do sensory friendly weekends. Great for autistic kiddos. They do special exhibits so you’ll need to check their website for the dates.
