  • TWO DAYS. That's what you'll need to truly experience this museum. No wonder they are always rated so high and win some many awards. Their exhibits are detailed, thought provoking, informational, beautiful, and neutral. I especially enjoyed the firearms and natural history museums. The newly renovated firearms section has simulators, interactive gun-models, and firearms safety, as well as a history of guns and guns in society today. The natural history museum's museum layout is very interesting because it is a spiral that starts high and ends low. Each section in the spiral corresponds to an elevation in Yellowstone, so as you walk down the spiral you get to learn about the different elevations and what goes on in them. If you go to this museum, which you should, remember to allocate two days because you will need it.
  • This place is really awesome be prepared for an experience! It takes a little bit to go through their gift shop, but totally worth it that's when we went they had great sales going on!! So many amazing things to see and it's almost more than a day or 2 if you're in town be prepared to go back!! I can't remember if it was $35 or $45 a person to go through.
