There are two permanent exhibits on the second floor that are always worth a visit. The first is a well displayed evolution of man going back millions of years. The second area [our favorite] is a small but extremely high quality Egyptian area that includes a very nice display of intentional and accidental mummification. On the first floor there are usually a couple of special exhibits - currently Mayan culture and celebratory dress from around the world. The displays are always in excellent condition with excellent signage to help explain or give context to the exhibits.
