  • This was tons of fun. Our 10 year old boys really enjoyed the illusions. They had a magician there on a Sunday which was a nice touch. It was a little hard to find, you have to go to the lower level in Union Station. I’m docking it a star cause we thought it was a little pricey for the length of time you could spend in the museum.
  • My boys and I had a great time. The price was reasonable and the staff was wonderful. They were all very helpful and friendly. They took pictures for us and thoroughly explained the exhibits if we needed help. Highly recommend.
