  • This was such a wonderful and educational experience. I have always had my theories on how evolution worked and shared that with my kid. My kid thought I was a super genius when she saw it was shown in one of the exhibits. We absolutely loved the artifacts that were there, including the on site lab. Cool to see the lab in action. I would recommend this to everyone!
  • Absolutely love this museum. So many exhibits to look at with new rotating ones all the time. Always clean and helpful friendly staff. The new lunch are is awesome and the pizza is SO GOOD! Great place for a chilly weekend to bring your kiddos to play and have fun while learning! The space exhibit got a face lift too! Be sure to book tickets to experience that!
