There were so many rooms and displays in this building as well as a nice eating place. There is art and natural history centers under one roof. Spend hours looking at everything from antiques to modern art to dinosaur bones.

The Hall of Dinosaurs has one of the most extensive collection of complete dinosaur skeletons in the world. It is well worth the price of admission.
