  • It was a wonderful place to work and the most heartbreaking goodbye the day it closed
  • Loved it! It might be mostly for kids yet I did enjoy it like one! You definitely learn something new there. Thank you for the pledges at the end of the exhibit , proposed to commit ourselves to be better beings to our planet.
