Tips for Families

When looking at the dinosaurs, be willing to follow your child instead of a certain path. I let my 3 year old lead the way and we eventually saw everything. He was much more patient and willling to stay longer by "being in control" of what we saw. If you want to see a particular IMAX movie, get there early. Many shows sell out on busy days. You may encounter field trips during the day, but most leave by 2pm which leaves the museum much quieter so stick around!

My only negative thing I need to say is park...
