My grandsons age 5 and 8 loved it here. They enjoyed looking at all the exhibits even The 4D movie about Sue. It was a little sorta scary (for their age) due to the loudness and being a big dinosaur but they liked it.

This museum has tremendous items on view ranging from the historical items of early America and their peoples through to taxidermy animals of the USA and beyond in great diaramas. You are also very close to other interesting museums and sights to visit.

This museum rivals the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and surpasses the museum in New York City.

Natural history buffs should spend a whole day in this very good museum. From dinosaurs to Ancient Egypt, it's full of information. Movie junkies will also like to see the frightening Tsavo Lions there too.

Plenty to see, we spend there about four hours. Little bit maze like which is why you better add little more time to wander around. Good exhibitions. Not so expensive restaurant and bar.

No Sue!! I looked forward to showing my son Sue but she is dismantled and won't be up until 2019. We got the Citypass so we were able to see the Mummy exhibit which was cool. The dinosaur exhibit was fun to see. If you...More

Lo, I like the way you think! It quite reasonably could have been called Sioux, but it was named after Sue Hendrickson, the paleontologist who found her.
