  • We bought general admission tickets, which allow you to see the whole museum. The museum is very detailed and interactive, but it is very large with few options to directly skip exhibits. On the bright side, almost every room had something interactive to do which kept me entertained. It's a very cool museum and definitely worth the time and money. We spent about to hours going through the whole thing.
  • We had an absolutely great time here. We spent 4 hours and I easily could've spent the whole day. Very, very interesting exhibits and artifacts. Well laid out. Very clean restrooms and polite staff. Lots of stuff that will chill your bones, like standing 5 feet away from Ted Bundy's Volkswagen. Highly recommend giving this place a visit.
