I took my son and his (both 15) friend to view the museum. At first, they were impressed by what they saw and who wouldn't be. The 5+floors share an open air style architecture and things hang from every level, creating a sight for the...More

There is an elevator but there are still some steps and narrow walkways. Elevator does not go to lobby so you have a flight of stairs to get to level one where elevator is.
