Young ones are often mesmerized by the mysteries of our planet. The North Museum of Nature and Sciences addresses these questions in the form of their exhibits and the SciDome Theatre. The three floors of this museum are divided into sections that deal with sciences of the earth, a nature gallery that houses a live animal room, the dinosaur gallery, the rock box which examines the effect of ultraviolet light on the museum’s geology collection, and the STEAM art gallery which combines the best of technology and art. Previous visitors highly recommend a stopover at the SciDome Theatre that takes you on a trip amidst the night sky. This theatre is designed to answer questions that begin beyond the earth’s limits. There is also a special show on volcanoes aired every weekend in the museum.

North Museum Of Nature And Science Reviews & Ratings
This museum is fantastic. The kids planetarium show was amazing. The staff is fantastic and friendly and all about making the kids have the best interactive time possible. There's so much to see you can wander for hours for a very small fee. It has dinosaurs, live animals, specimens, fossils, geological displays, taxidermy displays, even archaeological, and local artwork. What a fantastic find!!
Wonderful museum for families with young children. Thoroughly enjoyed learning in this fun, educational and friendly environment. Hands on activities make time fly by. We visited mid week at opening and the museum was quiet. I enjoyed learning alongside my wife and son as we took in each exhibit. There is a traveling exhibit that tells the stories of how 3 children changed the world (Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges and Ryan White) that were quite powerful.
Small, but so much fun. Amazing collection of geodes and birds in the basement. Lots of hands on for younger kids. My 8 year old and 13 year old loved the place but they are both really into science. We all learned a ton and found the exhibits very engaging. It is not a huge major museum but the admission is a fair price given the upkeep required, especially of the live animals!
I brought my 5 year old nephew here when he was visiting me. It was a great place to both learn and have fun at the same time. The people who work here are lovely and very friendly
I have been to the North Museum several times with my children and it is always a great experience for the kids and me. On this particular visit we on a class field trip and enjoyed the latest new exhibits the museum had to offer. We began our visit in the large dome-shaped theater where we watched an educational film about space involving characters from the Magic Tree House book series. Then we enjoyed the hands-on displays in the animal, dinosaur and technology exhibits. My kids really enjoyed programming the small robots and watching how the robots responded to each program. I enjoyed the many species of taxidermied birds they have on display in the basement. We could have stayed and played for several more hours. We definitely plan on returning to the museum this summer for some more fun at The North Museum.
