There's something here for everyone, and if you go on Tuesday night from 3:00-8:00, it's free! We really enjoyed the exhibits, and the building everything is housed in is beautiful. On top of that, outside in the back is a climbing wall for all levels...More

We had not been to the Witte in several years and they have done a great job with their expansion. We went to see the Whale Exhibit but loved many other parts of the museum. Definitely worth getting off the Riverwalk to see.
