Besides an entrance fee, there is now a $1.80 per hour parking fee.
No new activity has been added to the museum, the old stuff is getting really old. Most is really boring for any kid over 5. There are not enough things to share. It gets easily overcrowded. Some areas seemed to be closed for classes. The face painting area had two tiny pieces of crayons. In the clay area they wanted us to pay $2 to walk out with a small lump of clay. That is pure greed. This place has seen better days and needs a major face lift. I highly recommend to skip it. Most kids have probably better activities at home.
