Our family was so impressed with this modern, spacious, informative museum. We stopped by to take a look because our six-year-old loves dinosaurs. Boy, were we all in for a fun surprise! Plenty of information is available for adults and older children to learn something new, but it is also designed to hold a child's interest, including interactive signs. As impressive as the dinosaur fossil exhibit is, I was blown away by the rock and mineral collection. Geology was a special interest to me back in my college days, and this collection is truly remarkable. Another thing I loved about Tellus are the interactive and accessible features for children. Since touching many of the museum's pieces is prohibited, it was wonderful to have some items just for those tactile little hands to explore at will. We enjoyed the tour of original first cars and motorcycles, and replica of the Wright brothers first flyer. The cafe had a really nice selection of ready to eat items, but also a varied selection of hot foods which could be prepared and brought out. Even the gift shop made an impression on us! The staff was welcoming and informative. Items for sale were not overpriced, as I've seen at other science museums. I could have spent the entire day at this "gem" of a museum!
Thank you so much for such a thoughtful 5 dot review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit. We hope you'll come back soon!
