This museum is wonderful. The dinosurs are spectular. There is so much to see. It is a lot of fun and a chance to get out of the heat. A great place to spend the afternoon with or without children. Have Fun

It was a little pricey, but my niece LOVED the animatronic dinosaurs. They are a few skeletons and hands on areas as well. Of least interest to a 4 year old is the anthropological exhibits of the native Arizonans.

This used to be an old high school that my grandma used to go to so it was very neat to see the building and learn about the history! They have different exhibits and it was just very fun! The kids loved it!
