The Museum of Natural History is among the three that border Old Town and are therfore accessible by walking or biking from the cottage. It has an excellent regional archeological and anthropoligcal collection that (yes indeed) includes dinosaur remain. They also feature and IMAX Theater and Planetarium.

This museum has everything. There's every area of science, technology, live animals, real skeletons, and more. We could've spent many more hours in this museum. If we were local, we would definitely have a membership.

New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science tells the story about the history of Albuquerque and New Mexico. From the early years of when the ocean to present day. Disability access is provided, lots of walking. Disability was very limited. You will need about 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours to visit.

In the heart of historic Old Town - and next door to ABQ's cutting edge Art Museum and close to Albuquerque's superlative Bio Park and Zoo - this is a MUST SEE venue for geographic and cultural enthusiasts!

The museum is engaging for anyone interested in dinosaurs and volcanoes. The lifelike models of saber tooth tigers and other pre-historic animals and the narrative gives museum goers an understanding of what life in New Mexico looked like in the prehistoric era.
