Alot of history. I have not been any where else but I thought there was alot of old and interesting artifacts. It's sectioned off in eras which I found very helpful. I am not a big museum person but I would go back.

This may be one of the most interesting museums you will ever visit. It started out as a private collection and grew to take up a city block. You'll see everything from a mummy to a dinosaur to guns shot by Jessie James. You will...More

My grandson loved the dinosaurs and the kids play area on the third floor. He is only four so the wonderful history and displays held no interest for him. I look forward to returning when he is older.

The history of the world, beginnings of religions, U.S. wars, and especially American founding and leadership are covered in depth. Unfortunately, it is all comprehensive written descriptions. You have to like to read to appreciate this museum. Additionally, it stops at the Korean War. There...More
