The gems are unbelievable. This museum is worth a visit for the gems along. Of course, there are plenty of other things to see here. This, along with Air and Space, is a favorite with my kids.

Took the kids, especially the 5 year old for the dinosaurs but was sadly disappointed. Huge crowds and exhibits were not that fascinating. Hard to see with all the people and kids were bored (ages 11,10,5)

Wonderful exhibits. Plan enough time to explore the whole place. There’s so much to see.
Restrooms clean with toilet seat covers. Need to go through security to get inside. There’s a cafe inside and refreshments outside.
