    Very kid centric. We had a city pass but still had to wait 30 minutes online which was a little ridiculous. It’s a very informational place with lots to do. It’s very “pro” oil/ natural gas.

    Totally awesome! Could spend a week here. Order tickets in advance. Robot room is crazy for kids 10 + up to adults!

    Always secure your tickets online beforehand. It'll help you get in faster and you can always apply those tickets purchased to a membership!

    Get here early if you can. There's a bunch of stuff to see and do, plus it fills up quick.

    This museum is packed with cool stuff, like this fossil from about 120 million years ago. How cool is that?! Also, they have great collections at the Eye of the Collector exhibition. Don't miss it!

    If possible, try to go during the week. It's worth it to avoid the crowds and get to enjoy all the exhibits.

    BUY YOUR TICKETS AND PARKING IN ADVANCE ONLINE! They monitor how many people are allowed to enter at one time, so don't show up unannounced... You'll likely be turned away.

    If you've got kids, just save yourself the money and buy a membership. An interested 8 yr old can only take in one floor at a time before intellectual overload. Multiple visits required.

    Early member hours are worth the cost of membership especially if you have kids and would like to avoid crowds and long lines.

    If your kids can't read yet, move quickly through the top 2-3 floors so you can spend more time with the hands-on stuff.

    Been here twice, but got to do more this time around though 3 hours was not enough time! 3D movie and extra exhibit not worth it just go to the regular exhibits.

    Great museum, but it needs to make one day (or evening) each week for adults only.

    Don't plan to see everything in one day with young children. Get a membership and come back another day!

    Kid six or under? Your first stop must be the children's area downstairs. Sometimes this is the only place we go!

    It's a fun place to kill some time. However, it can get really crowded in some sections of the museum.

    Everyone starts from top and works way down, so do the opposite to avoid crowds.

    Perhaps it was due to extended hours, there were a number of malfunctioning and broken interactions. As an adult, you will comprehend minds and ways of how destructive children can be at this place.

    Make sure you know when your parking expires, because you WILL get ticketed if you go a minute over. $35 fine.
