  • My son has been really into dinosaurs recently so we went to the museum during one of their free days (Jan-March). Wasnt overly crowded, staff and volunteers were attentive and offered information. There was a nice selection of hands on activities and a few play areas throughout.
  • A lot of neat stuff to look at. Bigger than it looks. Took about an hour to go through. Went with kids of the age 5 and 6. They were somewhat interested. A lot of rocks and fossils made up a majority of the Museum. My biggest complaint was the gift shop.... Very un organized and a lot of the items didn't have prices. The admission desk is the same desk to cash out. Also very overpriced.
