Very nice museum with various activities and exhibits for families! The museum is smaller than I thought and you can go around and see everything for a day. They have a Marvel exhibit! They also have a movie theater but the movies being shown are selective and not necessarily the movies that come out from a regular theater. There are tons of activities for kids and some of them are also appropriate for adults. They also have a submarine outside the museum and the tickets for a tour are sold separately. The staff are very helpful and friendly! Overall a very good museum and weekend getaway for families!
Nice museum, the staff are really customer care oriented, the exhibits were spacious and not overcrowded. Lots of learning on all levels, one area is specifically geared towards children and I can see that the people in that area enjoying themselves. The planetarium was nice and comfortable, watch the Black Holes documentary. The submarine was great and informative, every question I had was answered with their Naval military experienced guides. I would definitely come back for another visit.
