Exploring the state's natural world, exhibits allow visitors to view and sometimes feel everything from the cosmos to fossils. – The Experience
Everything you loved as a kid is at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. Walk through a volcano, or examine life-size dinosaur bones. Create your own little earthquake on the Richter scale. Ride along on Virtual Voyages, a 12-seat mission to thwart deadly comets. The Dynatheater, with its enormous screen, takes visitors to exotic locals and brings them face to face with wildlife. Traveling exhibits and scheduled lectures ensure that there's always something new to explore.
The Lodestar Astronomy Center's planetarium is the only one in the world to project high-definition digital imaging over an entire domed screen. A second imaging system, Digistar II, creates a sense of motion through space and is capable of responding to audience interaction.
Great for kids – This museum is on a much smaller scale than the one in New York City. It is really geared towards kids, but will keep adults interested, too. There's a nice rocks and minerals exhibit. You can walk through a simulted volcano. I had visited here 11 years ago and revisited two weeks ago. Some of the interactive displays were not well maintained and were not functioning properly. Otherwise, it was good and there were some new exhibits.
Five Star – My oldest grandson really likes to go and see the Dinosaur eggs. I am now a grandparent member!

The BEST Museum in the WEST – A great museum, with great dinosaurs, big screen theater, high-tech planetarium. You can easily spend a whole day there!
NMMNH Rocks! – This is the type of museum that has it all. Everything from movies, interactive diplays, food, and of course, dinosaurs.
