Many exhibits were broken or non functional. The ones that did work were boring. Minimal interactive stuff. Very much geared to 10 and under crowd, and only if they're easy amused. Tweens and above will be bored. Spent $15 on parking and $32 on entrance, for a 45 minute visit that was not fun at all. Definitely would not recommend. Needs big time updating.
