Excellent if you're taking the family or looking around on your own. Take your time through all the exhibits (I loved watching the schoolkids watching the snakes!) and enjoy something to eat there also. I was there while a friend had a small date with the RVI and spent a lovely 2-3 hrs while waiting for her.
