New Mexico's Most Visited Museum

Seismosaurus and Saurophaganax in "Age of Super Giants" exhibition.

Just minutes away from Albuquerque’s lively Old Town Plaza, the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science takes you on a journey through New Mexico’s past, from the formation of the universe to the present. This interactive, high-tech museum features an active volcano, Ice Age cave, and dinosaurs galore, including the enormous Tyrannosaurus rex and Seismosaurus.

The museum’s popular exhibition, Dawn of the Dinosaurs, is the only Triassic hall in North America.

The Planetarium and Lockheed Martin DynaTheater are exciting detours on journeys through the museum, which also includes a cafe and the Natureworks Discovery Store.
