A lot more than we expected!

We weren't sure what to expect, but it definitely was more than we imagined. We loved that there was variety.

I had heard good things about this museum. The exhibits on dinosaurs is good. They have an extensive native American pottery collection and a few other artifacts that is interesting to see. The rest of the museum is apparently made up of rotating exhibits, most of which were not used while we were there. We also paid to see a... More

This is a treat because they have permanent exhibits if your doing a study and they have exhibits that change monthly. The planitarium is wonderful and they have special exhibits too! And the cultural center is within walking distance so you can go to spend a day with history and mystery and astrology all in one area!

From the outside this museum reminds me of a big museum filled with lots of fun like in the movies. However inside is not much to notice. The first section of the museum is vampire themed..... Up stairs are ONLY office doors assuming they hold classes for University students there. There are pictures upstairs between the doors but that is... More

This museum is wonderful. The southwest art is amazing in the Bill and Evelyn Davies collection. The dinosaurs are cool, and the Ranching Heritage tour is one of a kind.

Always a joy to visit. Staff always friendly & helpful. A "training" museum for students who want to work in this field, but you'd never know it, due to their extreme professionalism.
