Museum Of The Earth

1259 Trumansburg Road

PRI’s Museum of the Earth was established in 2003 to provide the general public with a unique opportunity to explore our world through a mix of natural history displays, interactive science features, and art exhibitions. The museum’s 8,000-square-foot permanent exhibition takes visitors on a journey through 4.5 billion years of history, from the Earth’s origin to the present day.

I was here for a private party and the museum exceeded my expectations! The exhibits are unique and contain a lot of information I didn’t know before. The coolest part is the whale skeleton at the entrance. Definitely recommended for events too!

Great place! We got into it with our MOST membership card. Fun facts and hands on for kids. Spent a good 2 hours there.

Not a huge place but if the kids like dinosaurs, they'll love this, and educational. The staff was very informative about the facts.

Take a walk though time and see some fossils. The mammoth was a cool highlight

Good place to know about the history of earth. The museum itself strives to mix science with fun activities but is on a somewhat smaller size.
