I have been to FI countless times. I always enjoy it, always find flaws, and always learn something.
Pompeii was the traveling exhibit. It was informative and left me wanting to know even more. The displays of beautiful art are wonderful and tell a lot about the people who lived there, the story of what happened is well told, the casts of the bodies have tremendous impact. I would have liked to have learn more about the archeology of exhuming this city and some points of the display were very tightly laid out and too crowded.
The standard exhibits are mostly interesting and insightful. The building is very unique and a special place. Electricity, weather and the trains are well done. The heart was once the most amazing thing ever but kids still seem to appreciate it despite its low tech approach.
The sports room was once cool but now looks like a day care center and almost everything in the space section was broken or dull. I am certain it takes millions and millions of dollars to maintain this type of museum so I happily forgive the negatives.
