There are many great collections and a total of close to 400,000 specimens. The Ancient Earth exhibits/specimens are my favourite (i.e., I love museums with dinosaur-age exhibits), but there is no close second, as I liked all the collections. Admission is free.

Smallish exhibits aside from the nice collection of dinosaurs fossils with species not seen in the West. Kids may really enjoy it. Free admission. The glass superstructure acts as a greenhouse, turning the lobby into an oven. The AC was either off or ineffective. Likely...More

Great exterior building, but once you walk in, it's pretty underwhelming. Very small museum that can be walked through in 30 minutes at most. It mostly has stuffed taxidermy animals, dinosaurs and a bunch of rocks. Would be interesting if any of the information was...More
