Even as adults we enjoyed this museum. The exhibits explain knowledge gaps in current science and the displays and specimens are truly mind blowing. We skipped the antique vehicles section and focused on the dinosaurs and native American sections instead.

Interesting history lesson about the earth's development. Dinosaur history and plenty of skeletons, including a reconstructed T-Rex from Montana. But there is more! There is typically a special exhibit as well as the exhibit outside of the reconstructed late nineteenth century house and farm. And...More

We recently spent the afternoon at the museum and had a great time. Our 3 year old loved the dinosaurs and the crocodile exhibits. It was the perfect way to spend the afternoon. Would recommend for sure!

We go ever week because we live here and it's still interesting for my 1.5 and 3.5 year olds m, especially their classes (included with membership) and movies in the planetarium. Great for out of town visitors too! Worth it, and don't miss the Living...More

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
