Mr 12 had a ball looking at the things and he especially liked the interactive displays. I enjoyed reading the info and thought most of it was interesting. Reasonable value for money - fun way to spend an hour.

Occasionally Groupon has very good deals on this. I purchased it through Groupon the last time and it was definitely worth it .
