“Great place to take the kids!”
Reviewed July 24, 2012 via mobile

We have had a family membership for the past three years. We love to take our 2 & 8 year olds here. They change some of the exhibits every few months and always make part of the new exhibits hands-on. They also have an indoor playground room which we love to take the lids to for a good break.

Reviewed July 21, 2012

If you want to visit a museum that is Smithsonian quality without the hassle of going to Washington D.C. This is an incredible place to visit. It has a lot of great displays and makes a geat field trip for schools. Plus they have good group rates.

This is a great place to spend time with friends and family of all ages.
