love this museum! my son (age 3) loved it, stayed there for 3 hours! Also, I went early Friday morning on my day off...if you go in the afternoon it is PACKED. as always, keep an eye on your child, I heard not too long ago some creep was lurking around, other than that it Is highly recommended.

My son had a blast here! So much so, that we came back every week for a couple of months, so he could do all his secret missions.
