This is interesting to walk through and fun for kids. It takes about a hour to see everything. You can spend some time outside or reading all the extra material for the area. If you like dinosaurs, it is a must see

Yes, the museum has a lot of reading and toddlers can be difficult to engage. This is because we seek to balance between engaging older adults and scientists with younger children. We do, however, offer a scavenger hunt, which often keeps older children excited about...More
