    i am surprise at all the high marks. a natural museum gets old real fast if it doesn’t update its information. like the Natural History Museum in NYC, this one is disappointing because of (1) the static dioramas (can someone at least reposition some of them; otherwise, they look like their frozen in a persistent museum Ice Age permafrost), (2) the old murals (if no one will repaint them, let alone create updated ideas of what dinosaurs looked like), (3) outdated information (why aren’t they mentioning they enormous dinosaurs found in Argentina?), (4) and lack of information (how about some more information about Neanderthals and Denisovans in Asia.. or the genetic spread of haplogroups… or the spread of languages… or the spread of spear points and arrowheads?). with all the grant money and the university war chest, you would think it would be better. you could get some freshman or summer interns to put something together. Or instead of new murals or dioramas, how about some more video? Kids are used to videos… for documentaries, movies, and videogames. I don’t usually gripe (look at my other reviews), but Yale can do better… and they should be able to do better than a family that has many incredible life-size dinosaur exhibits in the forests and fields of Montville, CT. the gemology section is tacky, but the Dinosaur Place in Montville is otherwise much better for repeated family outings.

    Awesome Museum, However the moronic, selfish “parents” that bring their kids to this museum and allow them to run wild and out of control throughout the museum shrieking, running and/or getting underfoot of those who wish to enjoy the museum totally ruins the experience. Hey Parents get a freggin’ clue: First, if you have an infant, a toddler or a child under 8, GET A SITTER and leave that child HOME. If you can’t find a sitter, STAY HOME ! Children that young do not appreciate a museum and you do them no favors by making them slog through exhibit after exhibit which they have zero interest in. If you do bring your child to the museum, understand that the museum is not your home, your backyard or a playground and appropriate behavior is not just requested, but required.. If your kid cannot behave appropriately, leave that child at home. If your child/children are well behaved and quiet, there is a world of wonder and excitement for them here and they are welcome.

    A good museum for kids with nominal charge to learn about history and historical things. The dino exhibit was really well done and the exhibit for live animals was a good surprise
