This place is fantastic, and I come here often. The way it is laid out is very engaging, and they make kids look for "jocko" the monkey which brings disinterested kids into the fold. They also have a great space for travelling exhibits which is...More

Not a "must see"... unless you're super into these sorts of places. Just more of a museum. Interesting memorabilia. Free tour.
