There is absolutely no excuse to not take your kids or even as adults go to the museum! My son has autism and likes to frequent the same places. He is so stimulated and happy at the museum…The staff is incredible. The exhibits are Educational as well as interesting. There are shows in the planetarium, Check out the times before you go to in sure you don’t miss it!
Absolutely amazing place to go, both as a kid, and an adult. They're just an incredible amount of stuff to see and do here. From highly informative educational displays, to sheer fun interactive activities, to outdoor physical games. Also, a giant gift shop that is actually fairly priced, unlike some other similar places I've gone to. If you plan to go, get as much time set aside for it as possible, the place is absolutely gigantic. It's going to take a whole day to see everything.
