“EYE-opening”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Worth going and even kids learnt a lot. The images were toned down and that helped with young kids. It is small museum but progression of events were meaningful

“Great History!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

It's Free, and if you want to get earphones they accept $5 donation. I think it's a really cool museum and full of facts and history that everyone should know about. Knowledge is POWER. :)
