  • Loved the museum! They are not afraid to admit that they need a lot of work towards diversity in their exhibits, as do most all museums, however once they have laid out everything that they are doing in order to achieve a diverse museum you will be impressed. Point and case: Jim Crow exhibit currently on display. Check it out, do not take young kids.
  • Some neat exhibits. But parking not very well managed .And would be a bit more interesting if things were slightly more interactive.
  • Cool place! Not literally. I think the a/c was broken. Really nice exhibits. Planetarium was awesome! Best part, free admission! Planetarium costs extra.
  • The kids had so much fun here and the great part is it is free.
  • Great museum for the right price. Excellent exhibit on the second floor with the history of this area. The third floor had a dinosaur exhibit, which is a traveling exhibit, but really cool for the kids.
