My husband and I are both Mesa natives, but I had only been here once when my teenagers were little, and he'd never been. We decided to do a fun Friday and bring our 2 year old and almost 5 year old to see the dinosaurs. I don't remember this place being so cool, but it is seriously worth checking out! Upon entering, you're greeted with 3 stories of winding paths featuring every kind of dinosaur known to man, with a huge waterfall and moving lifelike display at the center of it all.

What a great place to take an aviation buff or just family/friends to spend an hour or two. Its a pretty decently sized museum. The hangar the planes are located in is clean, well-labeled, and informative. I took my son there on a hot summer afternoon and we arrived just as a tour group departed. We floated around the gift shop for a few minutes, bought our tickets and was greeted by a docent who was super friendly.

I took my 4 and 6 yo daughters to IDEA today. They spent the entire day there, a couple hours in the child play area, then several hours learning about bugs in the bug exhibit. The museum definitely kept their interest; from making a farm garden plot in the play area, creating crafts, doing the bee wriggle dance in bee costumes, putting on a bug themed puppet show, to looking at a slew of preserved bug specimens, the museum offered much more than we could have anticipated.
