  • This is a great museum for adults and kids. There are lots of activities for children and the educational value is very high. I would definitely recommend.
  • Nice museum. Very kid friendly but also has some things adults would be interested in like an art museum section and some old guy's collection of fine paper weights
  • This was a lot of fun & staff was super friendly. Kids had a blast. And it's free!
  • This is a really nicely laid out museum. The staff are all friendly and chatty, and the exhibitions are laid out in a really accessible and interesting way. We really enjoyed our afternoon here.
  • Waste of time,pretty small not much to see and the old man at the entrance greeting the visitors may be a racist because my family and i are hispanic so he didn't.bother to greet us in the entrance or offer us some cards they give out to swipe in each station for more info on each exhibit,but he would greet,every white people that will come in so i had to ask him for the cards smh!
