I visit the museum once a year. It is so amazing to learn so much about the dinosaurs in such an interactive way. The Science museum is a fascinating experience for both children and adults.

I have enjoyed going to this museum several times over the past ten years. The exhibits are very well done and well-displayed. I saw a Rodin exhibit here which was of interest to adults as well and children.
