This museum is worth traveling to see. I would recommend this over many larger museums in larger cities. There is a fantastic collection of artifacts here. There's plenty to see for all ages, but also a document area that kids will likely be bored by. This is a must see.

This museum is really cool. A very eclectic mix of artifacts, from Dinosaur bones to real mummies and shrunken heads, to movie artifacts and pieces of literary history. We very much enjoyed this museum. Make sure you have a few hours to enjoy it all!

This place was quite the adventure for sure! My husband and I wanted to see what this place was all about and boy did we learn a lot! There are 3 levels to this museum and it covers everything from the dinosaurs to the modern day. We spent about 3 hours there and even skipped a few exhibits just because... More

We really enjoyed our visit here. There are pieces from various periods of time including some prehistoric exhibits. It's a bit small so take your time because it's easy to miss stuff in those tight spaces. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We are considering a membership!

Our last stop in the Hall of Presidents was the most fun. You may want to see it first. From Washington to Obama there are excerpts of their terms, famous documents and wise or outrageously funny quotes.

Could have spent all day touring the 3 floors of museum. Everything from the dinosaur age, Roman , Greek, Oriental, Egyptian, American history - can 't recall all. Third floor seemed work in progress as switched to music , American cowboys, gangsters, authors - all in all whatever your interest- something was there.

Something for everyone to see and nerd out about. Parents got their pictures done in front of the red curtains between two armored knights. We loved the first floor, dad appreciated the second floor being an army veteran. If you have little ones I guess there would be something for them on the third. Great to check out. Spend two...

I took my two young nieces and they enjoyed have I ng the scavenger hunt to find all the different objects which kept them into the museum. There were different hunts for different age groups that was pretty cool. Overall a great... More

My 12 year old niece requested that we go here. She had been before in a school field trip. Nice variety of museum pieces with appropriate signage to explain. From fossils to Egyptology to multiple wars, this is big enough to inform but not so big as to bore kids to death.
