    Check out the Beyond Earth Spaceship exhibit (starts 6/25/16 and watch the 12 minute movie there...try to get the middle seat in the middle row for best view and feel the vibration).

    Birthday Party here? Not worth the room rental! Better off bringing a cake and having party in the cafeteria! The staff does NOTHING for you other than gift cart and room with table/chairs.

    We could spend the whole day there and we don't have any kids. What a great way to enjoy the day and learn some unique things. The dinosaurs were my favorite.

    The Take Me There: China exhibit was good and the dinosaurs (including the mummy) are incredible! We spent hours there and could have stayed even longer.

    Must go to when visiting the city if you have kids. Tickets are pricey though. They should use the city's tax dollars towards lowering ticket prices.
