This is a museum that has a lot of offer, but it's not overwhelming. I recall coming here as a boy to see the mummies and being spellbound. There's still stuff that's great for adults here, w/ some strengths being their Egypt and Southeast Asia sections. I've also enjoyed their Greco-Roman artifacts. I think it's well lit (unlike, for example, the American-Jewish Museum), well organized, and has good descriptions of what you're seeing. I think families with young children could really enjoy this place and folks who just find history, culture, religion fascinating. One drawback, it's not particularly close to many good restaurants, which tend to be about 5 blocks away, although it has a serviceable restaurant inside.
