    This was an amazing museum before they expanded and now it is even better. You could spend the whole day here and not see it all. Great meeting rooms, clean bathrooms, and a variety of dining options. Downtown Raleigh is a lovely spot to spend a day wandering around.

    This is the museum that has taught my children to love museums! We took our children here at least once a month when they were pre-school age and now we bring them every time they have a break in school. There is no way we ever see the whole museum in one visit.

    They have a great animal program in the mornings and we just love the butterfly room. Our favorite special exhibit was the Animal Grossology. The new wing is amazing and will keep your elementary school aged (and older) kids busy having fun and learning.

    Love going here. Usually go with my kids now, but I enjoyed it for a decade before them!

    Awesome and it's free! It was a great way for us to get our little one and his cousins out for the morning while we were in town for a wedding! Beautiful facility since it's upgrade!

    I love this museum. It doesn't matter what show they are promoting at the time, the place is amazing to go through. So much to see and learn!
