  • Best advice I can give, buy your tickets online and expect to spend your entire day here. Or week. Or month. You just can't see it all. This massive museum has so many incredible things to see but it also gets super crowded that it's overwhelming in areas. We took our young teens and they enjoyed it but I'm glad we didn't do it when they were younger. I would not want to be pushing a stroller or chasing toddlers through there. The museum is worth all the traffic though, and allow plenty of time to get through the space center. The planetarium show is awesome!

  • Very clean. Polite staff. Amazing exhibits. You would need more than a day here. You can learn lots! Luckily it wasn't a hot day, but I could not find a single working water fountain. plenty of broken ones around.

  • If you want to know about anything regarding our world, the answers are here. Exhibits are timely and detailed as well as beautifully displayed. Climate is comfortable, cafe is reasonably priced, docents are available for questions, staff is friendly and helpful. I've visited five times and still find corners I haven't explored. Always delightful.

  • A great Natural History museum! I'm from the DC area, so paying for a museum felt weird, and it was definitely expensive, but wow! What a great museum! We spent most of our time in the fossils. I've never seen such an awesome display! There was a phenomenal number and variety of fossils, and everybody enjoyed them. There was a mummy exhibit on when we toured, and it was both well done and very respectful to the mummies. The taxidermist animals we're great too, very well done, and I really enjoyed the efforts to make the displays as lifelike as possible. Sadly we weren't able to get to much more (young children get tired), but I would love to visit again in the future. A wonderful museum!

  • It's a good place to go if you enjoy learning. You could easily spend 2 or 3 hours inside. There're cafeterias inside and many places to sit down and have a rest. Suggested ticket is $22 but if you are interested interested in the temporary expositions you can pay less. A very appealing place to go.
