National Geographic Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • We saw the Queens of Egypt exhibit and it was amazing. I strongly recommend visiting it as it has a lot of information and some interactive experiences such as the Senat game. We saw the Queens of Egypt exhibit and it was amazing. A very interesting 3-D film is also showing about mummies. You felt like you were actually there. A great experience for sure.

  • Although their exhibit space is petite, NatGeo has a creative curator who uses the space well. 3 dimensional standing tours, interactive storytelling, and moving pictures make the exhibit feel grander than the space it occupies. The exhibit we saw? The Queens of Egypt.

  • This museum did an excellent job with the layout of their information and artifacts. It was a nice flow of patrons, and I appreciate that it was made clear what was a replica and what was on loan as an artifact. There is a great 3D video on Queen Nefertari's tomb within the exhibit. Highly recommend visiting the Nat Geo Museum for their general free admission displays and also their seasonal Queens of Egypt exhibit. Beautiful, clean, and friendly staff.

  • Loved the Queens of Egypt exhibit. The museum might want to review how they present the written descriptions of the various artifacts. Some in my group found the print didn't have enough contrast with the background and was positioned poorly--too close to read with their distance lenses and too far away to use their readers.

  • The Egyptian exhibit was amazing. I am an Amelia Peabody fan, and that increased my interest. The number of artifacts and the detailed description was fascinating. I lost track of time and ended up staying longer than expected. The exhibit in the main building was free and had video clips of famous people sponsored by National geographic. the clip of Jacques Cousteau and Jane Goodall were my favorite. It was a great experience.
