ARRIVE CURIOUS. LEAVE INSPIRED. Be led through time among life-size dinosaurs, fossils and more. Enjoy a meal at the vending cafeteria and purchase collectibles at the gift shop. A wigwam, like those made by the Potawatomi tribe, will be large enough to hold 30 children for educational classes. Temperature and humidity controlled, this state-of-the-art-museum will be fun for the whole family.
