  • One of the best museums I've been to. You'll need a map, you can easily spend the whole day here. The gem/geode collection was beautiful, the dinosaur exhibit was so cool and had a lot of real fossils/bones. Loved seeing the different animal species. Also the sea creature exhibit was beautifully laid out!!!!
