Free admission, but must pay for parking. Inquire of local hotels if they offer shuttle service. An all day event for the dedicated museum goer. Docent tours, Imax theatre, virtual reality rides, a sizeable gift shop and even a McDonald's are all on location. Don't...More

amazing number of exhibits you need to allow a lot of time to see everything. There is no entrance fee but there is a charge for parking. Well worth a visit

Spent 4 hours here and barely scratched the surface. Other than the Imax, everything from admission to the very informative guided tours, to the trip up to the observation tower are all free (parking is $15). Need at least 2 days to take everything in.
