(Museum of Nature & Science)
This is the fourth largest museum of its kind in the nation with three floors of incredible exhibits about our planet and the creatures that live on it.
Explore the wonders of space in the interactive exhibit, Space Odyssey, and view the celestial worlds in Gates Planetarium.
Egyptian mummies, rare gems and minerals, colorful butterflies and Indian totem poles are mixed with 80 world-famous dioramas that depict animals from around the globe in realistic settings. Some of these dioramas take years to construct and feature tens of thousands of leaves and trees, all made by hand. The Botswana Hall is the largest of its kind, and the Colorado Hall is an excellent introduction to the wildlife and terrain found in the area.
Prehistoric Journey is a $ 7 million exhibit that transports you back to a time when dinosaurs ruled the planet. Visitors walk through envioramas that duplicate the sights and sounds of prehistoric earth, complete with fighting dinosaurs.
The Museum also has an IMAX Theatre (separate admission required) featuring the world’s most realistic movie adventures on a huge screen, 4 ½ stories tall.
