5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

This is a great stop along the waterfront to take the kids. We have visited twice. It is much better if you call ahead and schedule a tour guide. They were great! This trip we did not have a tour guide, but we used a scavenger hunt (ask at the front desk) and that really got the kids involved. Take ashort walk across the street over to the trolly museum...and go for a little ride.
