Our family loved this park! We were shocked that more people weren't there. We got there a bit after 9 and it was us and one other couple. We went outside first so we could explore the grounds before it got too hot and walked the Breakthrough Trail and came inside afterwards to see the museum. We didn't do the headsets and I think we missed out on quite a bit not doing them. The museum was set up primarily with the idea of using them and we ended up just walking through and looking rather than a lot of learning at this part. If I did it again, I would get the head sets. The museum was fabulously done! Very impressed with the quality inside there. We aren't sure why this park is so quiet but it was. The TripAdvisor reviews are so high and yet it is a sweet, quiet place that our family just loved! There was a snack bar set up there but it was closed. Not sure if it ever opens but it looked closed for a while, not just the morning. The gift shop was huge and there was a lot to look at and buy! :)
