The museum did not have a lot of exhibits open or exhibits that was interactive for my 8 year old. No coupons and we spent less than 30 minutes in there .

This museum is great! We are family members because of our two year old granddaughter. She loves it here. They have a separate section for toddlers, but the rest of it is appropriate for her as well. You'll have a great afternoon of fun here.
