Some museums try to be all things to all people. While they certainly have exhibits for everyone they specialize in things for kids. While we were there a dinosaur display was being enjoyed by the little ones. They also have a short talk and 'firing'...More

This museum is a great place. You can go to it more than once a year. They always have new displays and interactive things o do. They often bring in shows from somewhere else. Love the place.

Although many activities are geared for kids, which are all great by the way, there are also a variety of cultural events to enjoy.

Basic museum. A few artifacts and some reading to do. Nothing you could not find on a quick search on the internet. Art show was definitely not my thing. Very amateurish in my opinion, and all with huge price tags.
