Honestly this whole area needs to be redeveloped walking in this place and the aquarium it’s like I’m in the 80’s. Place is tiny and the show they present is a history channel documentary nothing special that you couldn’t see at home.

Quite a small museum, we didn't spend much time there because we came by closing and we just had time to watch a 10 mins movie. The rest might be interesting for kids: interactive expositions, history and geological samples. It was part of Discovery Pass,...More

I believe this building is around 3 dollars to get into and 2 for kids. But I agree with the comment above- grab the discovery pass!
