This museum had a lot of hands on exhibits for younger children along with things that appeal to all ages. A great experience with my family group.

I absolutely LOVE this place! I ended up buying the family membership for $99 because my kids have so much fun. I was blown away the first time we came because this museum is not what I would expect in the best way. I expected it to be like any other museum where you just read about the history and see all of the art and collections… NOPE… it’s even better. They have a really cool simulator that you sit in and hear the story about terrible Tuesday while feeling like you are THERE experiencing it. They have a beautiful gallery that shows you photos from very, very long ago! It’s just beautiful. It’s a great place for all of the family because they’ve got things for adults and so much interactive things for children to do. I strongly recommend checking it out, it’s worth it… AND right out front of the museum you get to see a bunch of cute little prairie dogs!
We take the grandkiddos every year when they are in town visiting. They always enjoy the exhibits new ones and the old ones. We usually spend 3 to 4 hours there when were there. Always a great time!
