We have an older son and weren't sure if he would still be interested in the museum. But, we all had a great time. We spent around 3 to 4 hours at the museum and enjoyed all the exhibits. Very nice afternoon.

Our family loves to visit during the holidays! We usually spend most of the day there visiting all exhibits old and new and will not leave until riding the slide at least 4-5 times.

It was very crowded when we went which was overwhelming. We don't usually mind crowds but it limited our enjoyment of the exhibits.

It’s mostly hands on for children. I found it interesting, but wouldn’t plan on visiting on my own.
