    Great exhibits of many different animals, space exploration, gems & minerals, rotating special exhibits. IMAX theatre is always cool to do. MUST DO observation deck! Parking 👎🏼

    Good place for a quick trip. Check to see what the visiting exhibit is. The different climate areas are disappointing -- just some stuffed animals. Their IMAX shows are generally very good.

    Beautiful views of City Park and Cityscape. New edition is stunning. IMAX is super and the museum itself never disappoints.

    The Mayans were fascinating: they monitored the sky every night and via extensive record keeping were able to predict astronomical phenomena because they kept perfect records for hundreds of years.

    IMAX and Planetarium are super cool! If you plan to go to the Museum more than 2 times a year, buy annual membership. It's well worth it!
