Once you step inside, a massive dinosaur fossil in the incredible and vast main foyer greets you. From here, there are endless hallways and rooms for you to explore. And since the museum covers everything from dinosaurs to minerals, there is truly something for everyone. The museum is so large that I broke my visit into two days. On the first day I explored the dinosaur, mammal and reptile wings. I have a slight little boy fascination with dinosaurs so I did spend the majority of my first time with these ancient fossils.
