Such a great way to spend the day! The campus is large but it provides something for everyone in your group to enjoy. Our favorite thing to do was the interactive guideboat and admiring the amazing views!

Dogs need to remain outside the museum, where there is dog-walking area. Humans can go in and out of the museum as often as they like.
