You can't beat free
Cool things to explore and learn, best thing is...it's free!

Dinosaur Exhibit, Shark Tank
As a scientist, I'm thoroughly impressed with this museum. It's the best natural history museum I've ever visited. It's great for adults as well as kids.
Spend a day and enjoy yourself. They have new special showings periodically.
Seeing new wing
Always a good place to visit. 1/2 day worth of stuff to see
Daily Planet Cafe is surprisingly tasty and not badly priced.
This is the best museum I think I've ever been to! A must-see!!!

Use your mind and explore this wonderful place
It's FREE and totally awesome
Beautiful free museum! The dinosaur fossils were my favorite part.
Totally awesome museum. There is so much about the different terrains in NC that makes NC so unique . Great staff too!
Its a little dry and sciency for my tastes.
The magnifying microscope in the Discovery Room is so cool! Be sure to check it out!
It's free, but the traveling exhibits cost money.
A fantastically amazing place!
Science fair. Good stuff!
They don't sell Nehi in the cafe anymore. :( No Sundrop either. Dang.
They serve Larry's beans coffee here and it's so good!
Check out the new wing of the museum, and be sure to see the meteor exhibit! A slice of a meteor from my hometown (Estherville, IA) is in there!
They have beer at the bar. Like.
No tax charged in the gift shop.
Go to the new area, a research center. It's interactive, they have videos you can watch, games you can play, and a 3 story screen that shows clips! it is like a whole other museum! Gift shop and cafe.
Check out Cafe Prost! Pretzels are the best! Tomato and Gouda tastes like a mini pizza. Truck is located near museum entrance.
Dont sit behind really freaking tall people in this theater
This place lacks huskies. *sad face*
Always an adventure! Love love LOVE this museum.
Great local museum for the younger kids...and FREE,too.
Animal grossology is great for little kids!
Watch out for Joe
