Steered my 8? Year old niece through various activities and displays and kept her interested. So much packed into a small space. Allow time to leisurely browse and view files and artifacts. Something for everyone.

Very interesting and nice to see that equipment has been maintained and on display for all to see. No entry fee, which is better yet.
