We really liked this and would recommend it. You can spend 2 hours or all day. I am not a huge fan of history but this was fun.

Yes there is a snack bar type of restaurant. We left and got lunch elsewhere and came back in on the same ticket. I think they stamped our hand if I remember. We did have to do something before we left
