Admission is free on the first Tuesday of each month.Dinosaurs and more! We've visited the Natural History Museum twice and couldn't recommend it more! My children (ages 3 and 5) loved looking at all of the different floors and areas of the museum, especially the large animal halls. There's also a wonderful hands-on Discovery Center downstairs with insects, snakes, fish, skeletons, story time and there's even an area for digging for fossils. The last time we went, there were craft tables set up in the main entry area where the children made zipper pulls out of beads and stones. And the year before we enjoyed the Spider Pavilion which housed an amazing assortment of webs and large, colorful spiders. But the greatest part of this museum hands down is the Dinosaur Encounter which features a life-like Triceratops or T-Rex show. It's a wonderful experience for children and parents alike! Don't forget to stop by the Dino Lab to watch real-life scientists working with real fossils.
