We were there for about 2 hours and didn't even see everything. We had a fun time as a family and will return.
Very informative and clean.

The depth, the variety, the vitality, the information, the style (and more) all works to pull the visitor in to explore more and more. The museum has a hum of energy from folks doing research, answering questions, holding classes. Go. Visit. But, be forewarned, you well may end up staying longer than you had planned.

So glad we took a day trip to Raleigh to visit his museum!! It was amazing! My 6 year old had a blast with all the hands on exhibits and the volunteers in each hands on experience were so kind and helpful. The beautiful exhibit is a must!

This was my first visit to Raleigh and I immediately went to the fourth floor of the museum to see the sloth! He’s surrounded by dozens of beautiful butterflies! I got the best plush sloth in the museum store!!
