They may not know it yet, but future archaeologists, researchers, and scientists will find their inspiration among the hundreds of hands-on exhibits at the Museum of Nature and Science. Paleontology, astronomy, and physiology displays simplify the complex natural processes for young visitors.

Make time to explore all of the museum's permanent exhibits, including Little Urban Farm, an introduction to sustainable living and agriculture; the Mixed Signals Gallery, a study of how individuals visually process the world around them; and Your Incredible Body, a 2,000-square-foot guide to understanding DNA, skin, the digestive system, and more. Discover how dinosaur skeletons take shape through the careful repositioning of fossils. And don't forget to visit the massive planetarium and IMAX theater.
