“Natural history appeals to all ages! There are artifacts that you can’t possibly see them all in one visit. The dinosaur exhibits, the Family Hall of Mammals, and the Sant Ocean are fascinating and great for adults and kids. Then there's the cinematography and scenery in the IMAX films that's simply stunning.”
