Amazing the 4th floor. The museum is super big that you will need a full day to admire the exhibition

The new Gems exhibit was out of this world! Great place to spend a cold day. Very family oriented. Friendly staff.

Great to visit it. It’s amazing. It’s a fantastic museum to visit. It’s full of history. We would have more time to visit it. If you plan your visit you have to be there 4 hours minimum.

Very simple process, lots of fun going through the four floors of world history and artifacts from all over.

This museum is massive. Allow a few hours to see it all and you still might miss something. There are sneaky corners to explore and hallways that lead to sights you wouldn’t notice if you didn’t wander around. It’s amazing.

Very nice Museum. Clean and not too busy at the time we toured 2:30pm-5pm. Lots of things to see. The audio/theater shows were great. Serengeti & Worlds Beyond Earth must see.

The exhibits are awesome! We also viewed the Serengeti film and I highly suggest it! All my kids found it amazing and educational ranging from ages 4-10 and my husband and I loved it as well! Allow enough time for the day as we spent several hours there! It’s a MUST see!

Came here with family and we loved it. We were only there for an hour but didn’t even expect to get in. If you enter during the last hour, your ticket is free. Definitely will come here again!!!

I've always loved going to the museums from young. So to return back to the museum to see the blue whale and the improved planetarium was the greatest.
