I love taking my children here. It was one of my favorite outings as a child and my boys love it just as much as I do. The woolly mammoth is spectacular and the dinosaur exhibit is wonderful.

I remember my parents taking me to this museum when I was 5..and it spurred an interest in dinosaurs and everything I could find out about them. More than just prehistoric fossils, there are all types of animal displays, and an ancient Egypt section. I brought my son when he was two, he was as fascinated by the displays of all different kinds of birds as I was years ago by the dinosaurs. They even have a stuffed Dodo bird, extinct now for hundreds of years. Even an iron meteor! Plenty to see for the whole family, an educational experience the kids will enjoy.

This is such a great museum. There are many, many lifesize dinosaur fossils. The size is just amazing for children to see, but a little less scary than the realistic looking replicas that are occassional in the area. The also have a wonderful section on egypy with a mummy resting in a tomb. I remember going to see this when I was in elementary school and how amazing it was to me.

I have been going to this museum for at least twenty years and have never been disappointed. They have three packed floors of displays and exhibitions of natural history artifacts. My children love the bird and wildlife displays and life size "dioramas." They also have a very good gift shop for souvenirs. Beward though, if you're going during the week, there will be a ton of kids there--many schools do field trips there and it can get extremely crowded. Definitely worth the trip to New Haven!
