It's sometimes hard to find times when visitors can come when they are working in the city. Check their website to see what the special event is to see if it's something you are interested in.

This museum has an omni theater that has great movies throughout the year. Traveling exhibits have been well-done and are always interesting. The staff is knowledgeable and willing to help with questions. If they can't answer something they will do research and get back to you with answers.

Like to get here at least once a year. They have a large variety of permanent and temporary exhibits. Most are hands-on. I think they have a lot of unique and worthwhile items in the gift shop. We always see whatever is showing in the Omnitheater which has the large, overhead panoramic screen.
