The musuem itself was great. But...we bought tickets online and were sent to a line to get actual tickets. Took 30 minutes. Second only one small sign to buy parking ticket at booth. What booth? Went back inside had to stand in 30 minute line again. Website was not clear about parking or having to get another ticket when arriving.

Disorganized confusion!

1. No signs or arrows pointing to dinosaurs. 2. Nobody (we asked four different employees) knew when the movies start and or where to buy tickets. We got literally four different answers....and the worst was the tall older gentleman showing dinosaur teeth to kids. He should have known, so when I found out the 10 minute movie wasn't even showing anymore, I went back and told him. All he said was, "I'm sorry". 3. If I had known (it wasn't advertised at all) that the 10 minute movie stopped showing at 3pm, we would've seen it earlier. 4. If I had known the times that the 42 minute movie (one employee told me it was shown every 30 minutes) was showing, we could've seen it earlier.

The exhibits were spectacular! However, the parking garage was closed to the general parking. We had to park so far away and walk... not good for a person with disabilities.
