Jen W. from Denver, CO says: “Spent a morning here recently and really enjoyed checking out the exhibits – something for the inner or outer nerd in all of us. Found myself in the dino exhibit watching their volunteer crew prepare fossils for excavation – it was pretty cool to watch and find out about the massive collection of bones/fossils housed at the museum. My favorite new “learn” – the artist who painted many of the backdrops/murals has a great sense of humor – hidden in the pics, scattered throughout the museum are tiny gnomes! I found myself laughing out loud when I spotted one riding maybe a brontosaurus but definitely a plant eater in one of the displays. The IMAX is great – especially the Sci Fi Film Series.”
Jess P. from Porterville, CA says: “I loved this place! It has activities for kids but it also has information that is relevant for adults. There are docents throughout the different areas who are willing and able to answer questions and explain things more in depth. The staff was very friendly and very informative. We spent several hours here and could have spent even more time. It was a great learning experience for my 7 year old, 15 yr. old and myself.”
Amber-Leigh S. from San Francisco Bay Area, CA says: “This place has dinosaurs, a great earth and space exhibit, a FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC Mars exhibit with a “living diorama” of Mars where a a docent dressed up like an astronaut and pretends to do scientific work and the kids (or adults) can ask questions. I’ve tried to stump the docent, even looking up tough questions on Google, and she’s been able to answer everything. There is a cool gem exhibit, a fun children’s area, and an Egyptian exhibit. There are great dioramas, something which our science museum in San Francisco got rid of. This museum is nicely rounded. We attempted the planetarium show and my daughter flipped out when the lights went off. I tried to tell her they’d come back on and she’d get to see Sesame Street show her the stars, but she wasn’t having any of it. They refunded our money promptly. Plan to eat out or bring your lunch. The food here is craptacular. I always forget this fact then take my insulin and get stuck eating something that is worse than hospital food.”
