  • If you are going with kids under 5 and hoping to get into the kid room, don't go on a Saturday. They have private parties in the kids room on Saturdays and other guests of the museum are not allowed in. The ~3 other rooms were interesting enough for the kids, but only for about 15 minutes before we'd seen everything and were ready to go. Definitely not the amount of time I was expecting to spend at the museum! An adult could probably read and experience everything in about 45 minutes.
  • Pretty cool for 5 and under.
