Sadly, the Museum Center was mostly closed for the summer (2018) to accommodate extensive construction projects. There were only three children-oriented exhibits open -- nothing that we would want to see.

Great experience. Little disappointed that the regular museum was closed for renovations. We did get to see the chocolate exhibition. Loved it and learned so much.

We took an exclusive hard hat tour inside the building, under the outside cascading fountains and back with the rail tracks. The amount of like in the new windows will be fantastic as you will be able to see so much better.

Had a wonderful time at the The children’s museum with my wife and granddaughter. My granddaughter found it to be very informational and fun and allowed her the opportunity to interact with other children while burning off some stored energy.

We went here a few years ago. This place is amazing, especially the minatures! We could have been at that exhibit alone for hours.

The children's museum was excellent and grandson love it. The Aerospace museum was very disappointing for want you had to pay to see. Also disappointing that so much of the museum was closed for remodeling.
