Sternberg Museum of Natural History
The Sternberg Museum of Natural History advances an appreciation and understanding of Earth’s natural history and the evolutionary forces that impact it. With an emphasis on the Great Plains, our goals are accomplished through research, publications, collections, interpretive exhibits, and educational programs created by our staff, colleagues, and community.
I was totally surprised by the collection of local fossils and awesome life sized models they have on display. They also have a great fossil dig box for kids. The information is very well researched, up to date, and educational. A worthwhile visit for any age.
Amazing experience! Musuem was so big I hardly ran into anyone else, I could look at the exhibits at my leisure and not worry about being in anyone's way. Souvenirs were very reasonably priced (I purchased more than I would have anywhere else!) Staff was very helpful and friendly. I recommend going!
I visited for a convention, but the actual museum was very interesting. I thought that there was not much content (mostly just statues and fossils). One thing that May Turn people away is how unfriendly out its too creationism. In other words, if you are a stern creationist and are completely offended by the fact that any other kind of theories other than your own, come here. It may finally knock some sense into you.
Very enjoyable experience for family. Moving dinosaurs big hit with kids. Discovery room is hands on for toddler.
Much of the specimens were retrieved in Kansas. Rich in history and yet relevant. Must see rattlesnake exhibit before it ends in August 2017.
