This is one of the most enjoyable museums I've visited in years. If you are a dinosaur aficionado, don't miss it. They have five of what other museums have as a single specimen. It's a little overwhelming. Other material is somewhat limited, but they get...More

The outside living museum is closed during the winter. So I guess that early settlers went back east or to Arizona in the winter? Why not show how they survived the winter? Or allow access to see the structures. And no admission discount for not...More

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
