Went to The Museum again on Sunday afternoon to see their new exhibit. I enjoyed it! There was a lot to see with the replicated artifacts. Pretty cool to get an opportunity to see history come to life. I would go again! My only concern was the information cards at some of the exhibits-they were tiny and not exactly at... More

I was excited to be taking my grandsons to the Egypt exhibit which has just opened. The artifacts themselves were fine, lots of good King Tut stuff, but many aspects of the museum and the display were not good at all. First off,at the admission desk, they charged extra for both credit and debit cards, which I don't think is... More

What a fantastic event. I would however recommend a larger bar or two bar areas for next year. Also have your artist on raised platforms so ALL can see. Also, leave the voting buckets out longer so people have the chance to vote for a bit while the paintings are being moved the auction area. Still has the child like... More

This is just an okay museum for kids. You could literally do everything in 30 minutes making the value not so great. The exhibits do not get changed up much and when they do it's still fairly basic. Not sure if I would waste my time and money going again.

Its okay but when you leave the place with your date and 3pm on a Sunday and the local bums are sleeping / waking on the the side walk, rolling over each other fighting for a bottle and arguing about who has the last smoke... Its not a location for anyone to tour - The whole downtown is just a... More

I've been to The Museum twice now for different exhibits. It was formerly called the Children's Museum so I thought it was just for kids. Although it does have many small children oriented things, they have quite a bit for adults too. The exhibits change a few times a year, along with some permanent things. I quite like the living...
