This is one of the more disappointing museums in the area. The amount of exhibits is not worth the price of admission. I've been there with my kids (5-9 years old) 3 times in 3 years, hoping each time that there would be something new....More

Check website for the prices for admission. It looks like a child over 3 years is a $7.00 charge. I advise to go on the Thursday where you just make a donation of your choice. It may be the 3rd Thursday of the month... More
