We hadn't been down to visit in a few years. We had such an amazing time! Grab a building map on your way in because you'll need it to ensure you don't miss anything. We discovered areas of the museum we never knew about! There was so much to do and see. You could spend days there! And the security guards were all so friendly and helpful. The gift shop was excellent! We left with a bag of good finds. The snack bar "fossil fuel" had delicious and affordable foods, just not enough seating at lunchtime. Parking was expensive at $10 but it is what it is. Overall it was a wonderful day and we're looking forward to getting back to enjoy all that the museum has to offer again!
This is our first time here. This place is huge. It took us most of the early afternoon to go through. The dinosaurs skeletons were very cool. The kids loved them and so did I. My wife loved the art museum I thought it was ok. (Just not my cup of tea). The natural history museum was really cool though. To see everything in here would take you all day. We will definitely be back to look around more
