What an amazing first visit three years ago that I've purchased an annual membership ever since! My daughter is now 7 and absolutely loves a trip to museum every couple of months. They're always changing the exhibits and evolving with new teaching tools and technology....More
We bought the city pass in order to get into multiple locations, and I was absolutely appalled at having already paid for entry, and then on top of it, I drive all the way down to the museum and come to a screeching halt in...More

Loved this museum. Has so much interesting stuff with my favorites being the Egyptian mummy's and the very impressive dinosaur exhibition (which we left till last) but we also enjoyed the stuffed animal part which was presented very well. Fun fact, there is a Mcdonalds...More

We did that - bought tickets on the day, so I’m sure you can too. Maybe, you’ll need to buy them in advance for holidays etc thought, but I can’t be sure.
