The Museum often has special exhibits which are wonderful. There is something for everyone once you walk through the door. Having the IMAX theatre there is certainly a big plus!

There is a lot to do and see here. Some of the exhibits are for older children more than younger. They do have the discovery zone which is great for young kids, but not so much for the family with younger and older kids. We’ve...More

Every time I've been to the museum it has been worthwhile. There's always something new to learn and a fun side trip or two. Ask for the gnome map at ticketing window (yes, it's a real thing!).
