A great place for kids of all ages. If you are looking for a nice, peaceful visit this is not the place for you. However, if you want to see a lot of people having fun, it's definitely the place to be.

Visited on a Saturday morning when a percussion group from a middle school in Kentucky was featured in the performance space. Enjoyed the permanent exhibits, but loved the middle grades performance.
