This is a perfect place to spend a few hours with a child. Things to do for all ages. The Maya exhibit was very interesting and had a good introductory film. Lots of hand on experiments and learning opportunities. We will be taking grandkids there again.

Great care is taken to bring the best of traveling exhibits. The regular collection is great, too. There is an IMAX theater and there's a good coffee bar and restaurant. Always something for everyone!

Lots of learning activities and things to do for kids. If you are older and going without kids it won't be too much fun or exciting.

They always do a great job. The Maya exhibit was one of their best. The show was a rather large one. I would recommend skipping the Mayan Omni show though. It seems a little unfocused. We walked away from it somewhat disappointed. However, the exhibit itself make up for it. They had alot of hands on for adults and children.

We had a lot of fun here! There is sooo much for the kids to do there and everything is really very educational. We all had a lot of fun. The gift shop is a great place with lots of things, too. The views of the area from the levels are very pretty as well. I let the kids roam because everything is on 4 levels and all very open so I can see or hear them wherever they were. They had a blast showing me all the things that they discovered.
