  • Awesome place. Coming through from GA and didn't think it would be much to my interest but actually enjoyed it very much
  • I've been here multiple times with family and kids that I watch, the experience has always been wonderful! The staff is amazing and will answer any and every question you have! This is a wonderful family museum and you learn a lot!! If you're looking for something a little different to do, a trip to the museum would be perfect!
  • Had been to the museum before the renovations, and it was good. Now, after the renovation, amazing! The interactive activities are fun for all ages and very informative. It is on part with any museum in any city I've lived in. Well worth the trip.
  • Fantastic place!! Loved the experience and the staff. Very nice all around. Thanks for a fun day!
