About the Museum

Experience a world of science, history and nature through interactive exhibits and amazing artifacts. Discover that “ah-ha” moment in the STEM Discovery Lab, where creative thinking and problem-solving skills collide through hands-on experiments. Bring in treasures from your own backyard and have naturalists identify them in Nature’s Trading Post. Practice your spelunking in our recreated limestone cave, walk through a glacier and experience the ice age, get up close with Neil Armstrong’s space suit, watch our Big Brown Bats take flight, visit Dino Hall and meet Umi, our resident mummy. With something for all ages, there’s always more to explore in the Museum of Natural History & Science.
