The 2 stars are for the Planetarium at this site. That was pretty cool. The museum tho... Boring. Same as I remembered it 30 years ago. We Wanted to get a snack and drink but by 230 pm the cafe was already closed. Ok vending machine it is! ... Nope, it took payment but wouldn't dispense drinks. Front desk gave us our money back but hungry and thirsty didn't promote us to want to stay much longer. Overall disappointing.
Great attraction for all ages! Three stories of Interactive exhibits around every turn and different age appropriate hands-on stations. Variety of educational exhibits that allow children to learn and think. Imagination center was closed. Open in the afternoon. Wish there was more for toddler aged children with less coordination.
