My family really enjoyed Tellus. My husband and I took our 7 year old son and there was some much to enjoy I don't think I could pin point a favorite. The dinosaurs, the fossil dig, the hands on science experiments, it was all great. There is a lot to do and see. We will be going back to see the planetarium.

I gave the museum three stars only because their portray of science is only from a evolution point of view. However, if you want to see the best display of rocks of all types, Tellus museum is it! Both children and adults would enjoy these display. We purchase the yearly membership because it is cheaper for a large family and because of the ROCKS. We did not renew our membership due to their stance against balance view of science history.

This museum was different than I expected for it's name. Yet I was "WOW"ed by the unexpected. It has several dinosaur exhibits that were very cool. One reminded me of "Night at Museum" movie. There was an archeological digging area and panning for tiny gemstones. Speaking of gemstones they have one of the largest rocks and mineral collection around. It was very impressive. We learned so much. My favorite part was the huge periodic chart that was made of little cubbys. Inside each cubby was the element and something that could be made from it. If it was not possible to include the element than the discover picture and information about it was in that cubby. Very Cool. I wanted to run right home and duplicate it. What a science project!

This museum is wonderful and the admission price is very reasonable! My children (ages 4-9) absolutely loved it! The dinosaur skeletons were amazing, and the planetarium show was fabulous. The kids loved panning for gems and digging for dinosaur fossils. However, their favorite area was the interactive wing. I loved this section because there was only one way in and out, and there was a sitting area for parents near the door where you could see the kids in whatever interactive area they were exploring. This museum is a definite must see!

We live near by and frequent the Tellus Museum regularly. Our children range in ages from 1-10 and each one of them is stimulated in a different way. The children's area has great interactive exhibits that keep each age group occupied. The panning area is a great break from "learning" exhibits. Most importantly, the staff is great and knowledgeable.
