    Inspiring a passion for nature through science & education, the museum has hands-on exhibits that are kid friendly. Don’t miss the dinosaur exhibit. $10/adult ($6 after 5pm on Weds) & $7+ for kids. Read more

    The Museum of Natural History was founded in 1920 & started out as a small wooden building on a public square. The rooms were crowded with various species of animals earning it the nickname “The Ark.”

    They do a nice job with birthday parties. We had one there for our daughter in 2010, and it was really nice! Good combination of fun and learning.

    Lots of interesting displays, more "casts" of fossils than actual fossils. The outdoor live animals made up for that however and made it worth the admission.

    Had a lot of fun here. Neat exhibits (loved the dinosaurs!) and the planetarium show was pretty cool and interactive. Glad we went.

    If you’re here at night, use the angled roof of the building to locate the North Star, or Polaris. Other stars appear to rotate around it.

    If you have a large group, do NOT plan events on the weekend unless you get people there early. Stuff fills up too quickly.

    The Whales|Tohora exhibit is definitely a must-see. Stop in before January 27 to hear legends, touch whale bones, and crawl through a life-sized whale heart!
