We had a great time with our 3 Scouts there. Good amount of displays and memorabilia. History for the teens and adults, fun for the little guys. The interactive area has a shooting gallery, pinewood derby track with cars to race and a virtual ATV race where you pedal bikes to race.
Good display about the high adventure camps the BSA has to offer, got our Boy Scout very excited about the chance of going to one or more of them.
One of the best things was the trivia - more of an information scavenger hunt. Each rank has their own questions. Walk through the museum to find the answers. Volunteers were helpful for the tough ones, and pointed you to the right answer instead of just giving it to you. Turn in the correct answers and you get a ribbon for your Pack or Troop flag. The boys are as excited about that ribbon as they were about visiting the museum. Gift shop on site (with a Scout Shop) so you can pick up some trinkets.
Visiting this site also counted towards the Scouting Heritage Merit Badge. Next time we are in the area we will be back for sure.
