We're visiting from out of town this week, and have an ASTC pass at a "sister" museum, so admission was free. We got to the PSC around 10am (when they opened) and there was still more to see by 4pm when we left. Obviously, I could have pushed my kids to rush through, but they were having a good time investigating the exhibits on their own, and we had nowhere else to be. They enjoyed the insect and animal "puzzles" and being able to open and close the dino jaws with the hand cranks. I would agree with the previous review that the animatronic dinos are a bit dated... BUT... this did not decrease my kids' enjoyment in the slightest!! We sat through a "class" on sound/vibration -- which was GREAT!! My kids enjoyed it AND learned something. :) My only complaint would be the less-than-obvious schedule of IMAX movies and planetarium shows. By the time we decided to pursue one, the timing was not so hot. There are flyers for the IMAX shows all over the museum, but (unless I missed something?) -- you have to go to a staffed desk to ask about what exactly is playing and at what time and in which theater. Even a sign in front of the theater (ie, Next Show at 1pm) would have been helpful!
We have been contemplating whether to come back again before we leave... we really did have a great time here!!
