This place was amazing!! Smaller than expected but packed with so many amazing things! Our 8 year old daughter and I, along with my husband, all enjoyed the day. Getting to see the dinosaurs was the best part. We also did the butterfly exhibit, which was amazing. You pay $8 for the butterflies and get a 30 min window for the instruction, time inside, and then making sure that no butterflies are on you as you exit. The gift shop in the butterfly exhibit was expensive. I recommend buying souvenirs inside the main museum because they are cheaper. This was seriously one of the coolest things I’ve seen. As long as you enjoy history and such, you will love it.
Truly delighted by the experience, the museum was very complete and the wings/expo areas very well cared and with much much of information about the matter at hand. The prehistoric wing is a museum-classic and a must to visit, it includes lots of information and actual-size skeleton build ups of dinosaurs and prehistoric mammals... all expositions were complemented with much side educational information. The venue has ample parking space however I'd recommend to go there early as the lot may get full very fast. In case you visit the place with a senior person, you can ask for a complimentary wheelchair and everyone will assist you. Will visit the place again whenever I'm back in the area.
