view web site ›'s insider take:

Lions and tigers and bears are the main attraction at this huge natural history museum, filled with interactive exhibits about planet Earth. Highlights include the Bushman (a stuffed gorilla) and the Lions of Tsavo, which devoured 140 British railway workers in East Africa in 1898. The crown jewel of the museum is Sue, the largest T. rex ever assembled. Her huge skull is displayed on another floor (it was too heavy to mount on the skeleton). Underground Adventure, another popular exhibit, takes you on a subterranean journey into the critter world (for an extra charge).

Open daily 9 am to 5 pm, last admission at 4 pm.
