The best part about this museum is hands down the dinosaur exhibit. What makes this part of the museum so special is that the museum itself has found most of the dinosaur bones. I like how they display pictures of the dig crew finding Jane (the young T-Rex) and Homer (the triceratops) in Montana. Makes for a more real experience. The rest of the museum is interesting, but I think it has a lot of room for improvement and updates. You can really tell what displays were new and what were older. The new Geological Rockford display was nice. I enjoyed learning what Rockford used to look like years ago. Overall my husband and I had a nice time. I'm proud that Rockford has such a Gem to share. We went on a Sunday afternoon during 4th of July weekend and there weren't as many visitors as I imagined. I'm hopeful that Burpee will continue to grow and that travelers will make it a must-see in the mid-west!
