Clean, easy access, and staff into it and helpful. But baseball exhibit is highlight and would have been a rip off ($15) without groupon ($25 for 4...and we only has 3)..Worse ways to spend 90 min or so but no desire to return..

Interesting museum but very small. A lot of it is about baseball. Near the sea front and bars/cafe Worth a quick look

Very small 50% of the exhibits are baseballs. Staff very friendly. Good way to burn up a few minutes but definitely would be bored in an hour. Large section of alligator information which would be boring for Floridians. Cute little spot most exhibits are pictures...More
