The static displays are colourful, informative and interesting. Because the building is expansive, we found it difficult to time our...More

Hi, I believe it's $10.00 per day... there is no free parking around the area. It's totally worth it as you will be spending most of your day there. Lots of great things to see and do. I hope this was helpful...enjoy!
