  • We brought our grandchildren and then some other family members there. The kids loved it! They were awed by the dinosaurs and got to pan for precious stones.  more »

  • Had a blast with our Dino loving daughter, lots of stuff to do and see. Definitely recommend coming here and make sure you plan plenty of time to see everything. She especially loved digging for fossils and panning for rocks. Gorgeous rock & mineral specimens too!
  • Such an amazing museum!! There is so much to see in the exhibits, and you will definitely learn a lot of new information while in the museum. The gem panning and fossil digs are so much fun, they really make your day and are a must see. Also, the planetarium is awesome-the documentaries on the big screen are so informative and interesting!!! Loved this place!
