  • Great museum. We used our museum pass here for another museum. Loved the large collection of dinosaur bones. The kids area was great. My kids happily played there for an hour. They do turn off the noisy parts in the morning for kids that need a quieter time.
  • I love this Museum. It’s in my backyard but they keep the exhibits interesting so we go a few times a year. Even though I’ve walk through the dinosaur complex a hundred times I still cruise though every time I go. There’s also great western history there. Worth the money and the time.
