We had a blast, even as adults! Really fun and numerous exhibits, interactive displays. Maybe not exactly new information for adults but still really fun, many displays of old items, which we found really cool. Recommended!

We went to an special event called Galatech. It was a little disappointing to find out there wasn't any creativity for futuristic technology. Many of the exhibits featured outdated technology which may not interest younger visitors. I heard so many good things about this museum...More
