My son attends school here and we have visited a few times. The campus is really impressive and a great place to walk around. In spring, the cherry blossoms are worth the trip alone. Be sure to visit the main library if it is open.

While the 4 year old was free, I believe the 10 year old paid $8, and so did I (as a senior) while... More
