Great museum for kids. My daughter loved the sand table, water table, and building activities. She found the old tv funny. Some interesting items for adults as well. I enjoyed seeing the GE100 concept car

I can agree that most exhibits in this museum are scientifically sound and very interesting, both the interactive and the historic ones, but for certain these were set up at least a decade ago and have not been maintained since then. This museum is severely...More

Sorry, I didn't see this question. I agree with other reviewers. From Amtrak you need to take a cab or ride share.
