This is a very cool museum with very interesting exhibits. We enjoyed it very much. Only downside was having to mediate between an irate patron and one of the staff members due to a bathroom entry. It was silly, but shouldn't have happened.

I checked out the museum on Tuesday October 2. While they did have some interesting artifacts, I only spent about an hour there, and don't feel like it was worth the $10 to view the exhibits
