We had a few hours before our family reunion so we went there and just loved it. We were also surprised with the quality of food offered in the outside cafe.

we purchased a ticket that would let us into all the museums. Went to two - The Amazing World of Doctor Seuss and the Science Museum. Both worth a trip! Both great for families

Come here a lot during hot summer days. Always have great displays and staff are very friendly. The restaurant in the first building has a nice selection of sandwiches so you don't have to leave the grounds to eat. Great for locals as well travelers.
