Nice museum, if somewhat dated. Clearly oriented towards school children with large dinosaur skeletons and cave you can walk through. Noisy with sounds that reverberate within the hall. Nothing on birds, fish, reptiles, mammals as you expect in a Natural History Museum.

Special exhibit on spies was dated and would have benefited from more discussion of today's technology. Emphasis on past informative but needs to be brought up-to-date.

Lots of interesting and informative exhibits. Lots of dinosaurs when we visited. We stayed for about two hours on a Wed. morning. Lots of moms with small kids made some areas very noisy.

If you want to visit this museum you must be prepared to spent a few hours inside. This museum has a good collection and it is good to sent time with your family just walking around and talking about everything.

Some hotels have shuttles to and from the airport, but none go to the Museum that I know of. There are bus stops near the museum.
