    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!

    Get a membership! You'll be coming back more than once. Pay for parking inside. It's halo price for members. Book the "Members Only" entry time and beat the crowds!

    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.

    The real treat here is the astronaut ice cream: you can eat the same ice cream 344,000 meters below as the men cruising in space.

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

    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.

    Museum was very cool, but very crowded. LOTS OF CHILDREN, not really a museum for adults without kids. Lines were long, and it was difficult to read with people bumping and standing around.

    Such a fabulous place to visit. Teachers get in free but you must show your ID.

    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.

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

    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.

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

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

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

    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.

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