We started our visit with a movie on the Big Screen (The Rocky Mountain Express) and then visited the museum, especially enjoying the Asian and Egyptian displays. I think what I like the best about this museum is that, while it does have displays and exhibits that are child-oriented, they do not dominate the museum. That balance is very important in a museum that wishes to serve the entire public. Very much worth the trip.
If there were a negative point to be mentioned, we did chuckle at the price (a whopping $18 bucks per person additional) to visit Lady Diana's dresses, which, of course, we declined. That is highway robbery...did they have to buy each outfit a plane ticket, or what? I could see such an exhibit being housed at the casino which sponsored it - or especially in Las Vegas. But why, oh why, in a museum?? Contrast that with the importance of the exquisite mummy in the permanent collection. Oh well, the chuckles were free. There's that.
