“Lots of hands on fun for kids and their grandparents!!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

The docent staff are excellent and overly helpful with not just the museum but the entire area on what there is to do. We spent two hours touring the museum and playing with the displays. Great place to take the kids and learn more about The Rock from Rocky!
