Don’t go. Loud, boring and stupid. Visited Louis Tussauds was museum and they had to have signs to tell you who the people were. Hall of Presidents was horrible! A blind person could have made them better.More

It varies on the exhibits, but it’s not a “cheap” trip. All attractions are separate and cost. I suggest you Call them before you visit. If you mention Groupon they will probably meet that price.
