Overall rating

I was shocked by the number of dinosaur and whale fossils. So many to see and learn about. The bug special exhibit was so unique and interactive . I wish we had all day there, it needs at least 3 to 4 hours to do it justice. My grandchildren, 9 and 11, had the best time!!

Rudy, our guide was awesome. Lots of history but he made it fun. The bus driver was nice and smooth and very friendly. Wouldn’t change anything!

A city tour which allows an overview before venturing out alone. Very interesting guide. City of great cultural variety.

I loved the Fossils area because I really do love dinosaurs 😇😇🤩🤩🤩

Insane experience. You must do it if you're in the area
