Decent place to stop and learn for about an hour. I highly recommend the tour, which is basically an employee standing in one spot and teaching you about the facility. Much more informative than the displays and interactive areas. Not much to it since it's...More

We stopped by here to take the tour just on a whim. Didn’t have to plan ahead and it was great to escape the heat outside and enjoy some AC. Picked up a free bag of money too!! What a great experience!
