We go every year and are never disappointed. This year we saw 4 movies, wolves, flight, the Canadian pacific railway and caves. I have a hard time picking my favorite! A great experience at a good price.

The "Northern Pacific Railroad" was spectacular. Though the quarters are tight, it is really something to see.

Great place to visit, kids loved it and the theater is mind blowing. I brought a season pass for 2018 for my step son and 4 children. Great deal. Can't wait to go next month.

I grew up visiting this museum. Loved it as a kid. Hands on science experiments are everywhere. Tornadoes, waves, piano stairs, etc... so much fun. Many memories were made here. It was that nostalgia that brought me back as an adult. Word of warning to...More
