This is a very interesting place with something for the whole family to enjoy. The exhibits are nicely laid out and they even have an elevator for those who can not do steps. You can also drop in the snack shop to grab a quick snack, drink or to just rest for a few minutes before enjoying more exhibits.
Great free parking. Admission was affordable. I really loved the outdoor area. There is so much to see. A great place to visit for a good price. I do wish the children's area was bigger with more activities and someone to host the area so children could have a more enjoyable experience. My 9 year old son was bored. My husband and I enjoyed our time.
