  • Went with son for a field trip and was really surprised how cool and informative this place is. We both really enjoyed the day will def go back. The state capital building is amazing as well visit both!

The prehistoric data was a joy to behold and read. The same building also houses the Civil Rights Museum. If you walk out of that part without tears or at least feeling like you've been mildly gut punched, you completely missed the message. I seriously suggest a minimum of 3 hours for each side, then go back months or years later because the small details really make the experience.
