Went for the DaVinci exhibit, very well done. Especially enjoyed the DVD playing in the lobby, which was overlooked by many. Very informative. Great after reading the bio of DaVinci. The exhibit upstairs with all of his inventions especially interesting!

We went to this museum with relatively low expectations, and were blown away by the many exhibits. There's something for every age level and interest. We'll be back -- repeatedly!

We were there on a Monday from 1 to 3 and came back to a broken car window, they got several cars, from what I was told it's not uncommon in downtown Albuquerque.

I didn't take advantage of the planetarium or the films here, but the permanent exhibits are superb. There is a slightly technical exhibit on the emergence of life that I found surprisingly clear and engaging, but the big story is "Timetracks: A Walk Through Time."...More

Enjoyed the dinosaurs, but the really cool part of the day was the Da Vinci exhibit. The machines were great but the surprise was what was new to learn about the Mona Lisa.

Some hotels have shuttles to and from the airport, but none go to the Museum that I know of. There are bus stops near the museum.
