  • I arrived very close to the closing time, still had time to explore it, though. Don't miss the short walks outside to the small creek down.

  • This is a very large very clean museum. Kid friendly, quiet, very entertaining! There is also much to learn here from prehistoric to modern times. I would definitely go back again because I couldn't get through the whole thing the first time.
  • There is a lot of information to digest here so give yourself a couple of hours. If you like arts and crafts you will love the native American Indian artefacts and textiles. If you're interested in geology there is a whole section devoted to the Colorado plateau and the rock formations. If dinosaur history is more your bag you can dive into the section on historic eras and marvel at the remains found in the region
