On the bright side, you won't need to allocate the time you'd need for say, The Metropolitan in NYC, I've found them to have an eclectic mix well worth the time. I've taken several out-of-town guests, some with younger children who were not bored with what the Palmer had to offer. Planning idea: I seem to recall in past years First Night (New Years Eve) celebrations the Palmer had something special our was at least open.
Don't over-look it if you'll be in town and want one more thing to see. Also, great way to get out of the cold : ) Also - I don't know if they still do, but they did used to allow cameras in most areas.
