We enjoyed the museum. The collection of dinosaurs is unbelievable! We spent hours in the museum but could not see everything. We will return to enjoy another day.

The Egyptian exhibit is outstanding. They have a wide range of authentic Egyptian art from tombs and many mummies including a mummified cat. My favorite is the Roman mummy, quite unusual. This mummy is the only mummy I have ever seen with a red beard,...More
