Plan a few hours to spend here. The museum is not enormous and overwhelming which makes it perfect for a family with younger kids. The alligator display and the dinosaurs kept their interest. We all loved the planetarium show on stars. Worth a visit.

The museum is one of the finest dinosaur exhibits in America. The side attractions were great too. The movies shown at regular intervals in the domed theatre were very cool and informative. I recommend this museum.

The museum has one of the best dinosaur exhibits in the country There are archaeologists working on fossils that answer any questions. . The special crocodile exhibit was very interesting as was the Native American exhibit. The admission also includes planetarium shows.

The museum isn't very large. We spent about an hour and a half there. There were two really great things about this museum -- the dinosaurs and the planetarium. Definitely worth the time spent.

Without a doubt one of the best small community museums in the country. They do a superb job of rotating exhibits and displays, which makes it wonderful for the locals as well.

Response from Christopher S | Reviewed this property |
It depends on how much the kids are into dinosaurs and the timing of the planetarium show. If it is the 'right' show the 4&6 year old might enjoy it so check the schedule and that will I think determine it. 1-2 hours
