North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences
Explore the natural wonders of North Carolina, from the depths of its ocean to its rocky mountains. Complete with a 20-foot (6-meter) waterfall, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science has much to offer. See North Carolina as it was, in a re-creation of six prehistoric habitats. This is home to the only Acorcanthosaurus discovered in the world, and Willo, the first dinosaur found with a fossilized heart. The Discovery Room is full of interactive exhibits. Looking for that perfect gift? The Nature Gallery has original nature-themed artwork available. There is a restaurant on site. The general admission is free of charge. There is a cover charge for special exhibits. Children under 13 years must be accompanied by an adult. The Discovery Room, Naturalist Center, and Living Conservatory remain closed on Mondays.

I live in the Carolinas and love North Carolina i love the Moutains and the cities but i love Raleigh a lot not as much as Durhum but Raleighs in my top ten. The museum was exciting. If you are bored or jus love camping in the North Carolina woods this is the place for you.
It is great for kids but also adults. There is so much to see and to do, it keeps the kids busy. It is beautifully made, a lot of new things to learn and also great for field trips.
And the best: it is FREE!!
It is absolutely worth a visit, you can spend an hour or a whole day in this museum.
Well maintained, architecturally pleasing, filled with lots of interesting exhibits and staffed by friendly, knowledgeable people...what more can you want?
Being a recent transplant from Miami, I was very surprised that no cover price was charged for admission; especially when you view the quality and quantity of exhibits. I've visited museums across the country and would easily rate this as one of the best for utilizing their resources. A fantastic experience!
I thinnk it was really fun and have been twice i am going back there this summer !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BRILLIANT I would go there any time last time i realy enjoyed it everybody is realy friendly and helpful there
