After many years, we ventured in to the Exposition Park with our visitors in tow and were richly rewarded for the various exhibits, The organization of exhibits is excellent The live show of Tyrannosaurus Rex was was with educational information and to hold the attenton entertaining. My grand daughter soaked up informatio on the T-Rex. The butterfly garden is good for the little ones.

I really liked the new dinosaur exhibit. One thing that was interesting was the different ages of a T-Rex. I loved the ancient sea creatures on display, especially the sea lion that was 12 million years old or so. My Husband thought one of these sea creatures looked like the Loch Ness Monster.

20 years ago I went to the Museum with my kids. Now that they're grown, I wanted to see it again without them. Great fossil exhibits and fun to see diorama's of animals from Africa and North America. The California exhibit was weak.
