We stopped to look at the art. We enjoyed the museum. They show several different films during the day. The native displays are interesting.

Great place to visit. Kids from ages 2-8 all had a blast looking at all of the artwork. Everyone in our group enjoyed the museum and especially the Native American section. If you have a chance, the planetarium movies are wonderful

Great exhibits on the early Americans. Fun art gallery of student artists. You can get up close to a really big mastodon.

We enjoyed a great little show called Star of Bethlehem at the planetarium in the Herrett Center. A lot of thought went into this one hour production to make it informative, teaching us about planets and stars. The price is very reasonable ($6) and students...More

Free to visit the museum with an additional charge to see a movie in the planetarium if desire. We spent a couple hours just looking at everything in the museum. Kids enjoyed it also.
