nice, airy display rooms, everything well described and presented. Computer displays worked well (touch screens can be iffy but these were top-notch). Wish I had more time to roam around & digest everything.

Was a very interesting and informative experience. I would recommend this for children of 10 or older. The guides who take you through the exhibit are both enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The exhibit has many actual bones and impressive exhibits.

Interesting for the adults but not much to entertain the kids. Expected more for the price of the tickets.
