This is a fantastically laid out museum. Really, I enjoyed everything about it. We went for the Einstein Museum -- and spent nearly 2 hours in that space. There is lots to read -- perhaps more to read than to see. Lots of letters, demos...More

Great museum, especially enjoyed the Einstein portion. Ate at the restaurant attached to museum and the food and service was fantastic. Pricey for a hamburger but one of the best I have ever had.
