  • Our kids, ages 14, 12, 8, and 5 all said this was the highlight of our long weekend trip to Iowa. Parts of the building were a little rundown, but that didn't take away from our experience.

  • Where else can you introduce a child to a mummy, and let them hands on explore physics. They had no clue they were learning. It was just a great adventure. And they are asking to go back. That is the best praise any place can get.
  • We had a lot of fun here! Plan on spending at least 2-3 hours here and add a few more if watching a movie. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We couldn't get our dinosaur exhibit pictures to send to us though which was a bummer. Hopefully they will look into an attendant being there to help answer questions.
