    I like it much better when, years ago, it was the Paleontological Research Institute. The exhibits were many and the staff knowledgeable and friendly. I learned quite a bit about the geology of the Finger Lakes. I took my 6 year old grandson there, my first visit since its pretentious transformation. He was impressed, at first, by the whale, but quickly became bored and wanted to go for ice cream. I found nothing of interest.

    What a cool museum. My wife and I visited there a few years ago and enjoyed our time. Not only did we learn about the area but about the geological history too. A very interesting place to spend a few hours!

    Thank God I did not pay money to get in to this place. I would have asked for a refund. Not much to do here except walk around and read. No interactive prescence at all; unless you believe in evolution then there is a 5 minute video you can watch on it. Not much for kids to do unless they like to read a lot. I would not go back. My advice.. skip this place it's not worth the price to get in and go down the road to the Science Center. I had way more fun there.
