Fodor's Review

All aspects of the natural sciences—from the history of the earth to extinct mammals to interesting insects—are featured here. Kids will love the saber-toothed tigers, mammoths, and skeletons of several dinosaurs, while adults will enjoy the rotating exhibits investigating the natural world in a state of change. Most descriptive materials are in German only in the permament collection.
