The Jewish history is very interesting and well-presented. I love the Muppets and could have spent days at the exhibit. The Noah's Ark exhibit was incredibly clever and wonderfully interactive. It's appropriate for children of all ages.

Went here for the Jim Henson exhibit. Very good displays. Parking is free. Had been here once before for a comic art exhibit. The focus and detail on exhibits is great. Worthwhile checking out.
