“Free Admission w/Pick & Choose Extras”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

The fee structure for the museum lets you get in the door for free, then decide where you'd like to pay for extra experiences: special exhibits, movies, etc. You can spend just a few hours and not feel ripped off. Lots of new stuff in the last few years too.
