My six year old boy loved every minute of it and it's also a news buff paradise. Most of the displays are kid friendly however there are some gruesome images that you may have to protect the little ones from. Set aside at least 4 hours min to get your money's worth. I suggest you take in the 4 d movie last or midway because it may bring together stuff you saw earlier on. For the live broadcasting that you could post on YouTube, adults don't use the booth with the platform because you head will be cut off because that booth is for kids and short people. Make sure you could eat all the food in the cafeteria because you are not allowed to take food out of the cafeteria area.
Finally the six floor will give you a great photo op of the US Capital building in the background.
