The exhibit hall is full of fun and color. Great for all ages. History on floats. Is best to combine the visit with the Caverns and the Big Yellow Barn. Good family entertainment for the whole day.

Could have been better. Some of the automation and TV wasn't working. It was kind of awkward touring the place when there is a birthday party going on.

I had no idea what to expect when I walked into this place. It was interesting, but if you do not like large animatronic parade floats, find something else to do. It was kind of like an indoor graveyard for parade floats. It was interesting...More

This was one of the coolest places I've ever been - the floats are incredible to see in person, and there is a ton of information on when they were used & what they are made out of. I would highly suggest visiting to anyone...More
