Great display of Dinosaurs. They are full size casts in addition to actual bones. There are many docents who come up and offer explanations of the display. Opals are my favorite gemstone and the museum has an extensive display showing Opals from around the world.

This museum has been a favorite since I was a child and always warrants a return visit. Our kids absolutely love this place and we come back just about every year for a great visit.

We didn't have much time but enjoyed the space information and the dinosaur information. Always great to stop at a science museum and this one not too large and easy to browse.

There was a surprising amount of exhibits loaded into this museum, although they would benefit from updating. It covers the history of the region including exhibits on dinosaurs, the Precambrian sea, volcanoes, caves, the ice age and space. We were lucky enough to meet volunteers...More

The exhibits in this museum were well done, very educational and informative. The people there were helpful and willing to explain the exhibits. The Dynatheater and Planetarium were the favorites. The only downfall was they closed down restrooms for cleaning during peak visitation times.

Some hotels have shuttles to and from the airport, but none go to the Museum that I know of. There are bus stops near the museum.
