Exhibits related to science, environment and culture can be explored. From ancient mummies to endangered plants to a complete T. rex, the Museum boasts a treasury of 30 million specimens. The Crown Family PlayLab has six themed play areas and is perfect for younger kids. Kids can dig up dinosaur bones, grind corn in a pueblo and play instruments. The PlayLab offers family bathrooms, stroller parking, infant zones and a staffed reception desk. Many other areas of the Museum also offer interactive elements for children, who can find out what their name looks like in Egyptian hieroglyphs, test your strength as both a small and large animal stuck in an ice-age tar pit, digitally search for birds in the rainforest, or 'Meet a Scientist' every Friday in Stanley Field Hall.
