My wife and I stopped by, on the last day of March Break, which was a mistake on our part. It was wall to wall children, who seemed to be enjoying themselves immensely. We avoided the dinosaur section, for obvious reasons, and headed to the Holocaust exhibit from Florida. There was some poignant pieces, and some interesting audio-visual pieces. The... More

I really like the Egyptian Exhibit that was featured there. My friends and I really liked the Modern City Exhibit too. Cool sounds, lights and fun.

The Museum is a good family spot. Lots of things for young kids to interact with. They cycle through a few different exhibits a year. They also offer additional camp and night out programs.

Underage Mayhem! The event was described as an "All Ages Event" 97% were either underage or barely 19. I am no prude but this event was poorly handled. By 11 pm - kids were vomiting everywhere.

Visiting the place at 4 in the evening was the only flip side of the visit. I loved the fact that it was small enough for you to be able to give individual attention to each artifact placed as part of Unwrapping Egypt yet big enough to give you an informed impression of that era and how they came about...
