Stayed at the hotel next door. Unexpectedly discovered the museum with its unheard-of $8.00 admission price. What a deal! My daughter loved the air cannons the most. We'd go to this museum again for sure!

We choose this museum for our spring break outing and it was perfect. We look forward to returning. Fun with learning and hands on. Safe place for kids to explore and they were happy to stay for hours. Ages 11- 9 months, 8 in total.
