Sternberg Museum of Natural History reviews
This museum has a large collection with a good variety of things to see. It’s good for adults and kids. Plan about 2 to 3 hours for your trip. It’s worth seeing. more »
My favorite part of the museum was the 3rd floor dinosaur dioramas-so huge and realistic. Almost scary for this grandma! The fossil "Fish within a fish" was awesome too, along with the movie of how..... more »
DON'T visit the third floor annoying lady domain, other than that the museum is nice. Small but somewhere to stop with the kids on a long drive, but if you engage the old woman on the third floor she'll tell you all about nothing in a relentless fashion that makes you wanna cut your ears off. The museum is mostly devoted to shark teeth & aquatic fossils & would be best for kids in the 7-12 range who love sharks... either way do yourself a favor if you go there and avoid the old woman on the third floor
This is a wonderful small museum just off of the interstate and easy to get to. They have rotating traveling exhibits along with some local animals that are native to Kansas and a collection of every rattlesnake species from north America. Frogs, a giant spider for kids as well as a huge whale bone for the kids to play on greet you in the discovery room. Kids can also become an archaeologist and dig for fossils.
