    Plenty of excellent exhibits - though the signage and labeling is miserably bad.

    One of the best museums I've ever been to. You can tell a lot of thought, care and attention goes into their exhibits!

    Don't take your little kids if they're under the age of 5 or 6. You won't get to enjoy anything, they won't understand anything, and they'll get in everyone else's way

    Among the museum's impressive display of gems and minerals is a six-foot wall of blood-red rhodochrosite crystals.

    I dig science/nature museums, but wasn't overly impressed with this one. Most interesting section was minerals/mining, but the rest was ok

    It might take you 2 days to accomplish the whole thing... The planetarium isn't worth it; they don't show any stars...
