Okay--I'll start with the caveat that I am from a big city on the East Coast and am used to much larger and more complex museums. Sam Noble is nice but small. I would recommend if you have kids or if you are new to...More

This place has some nice exhibits, though the Galileo exhibit was a bit of a let down, not much to see there. The kids like the dinosaurs and the interactive exhibits.

It will be interesting to you and will get you out of the house, the one year old will probably enjoy it but not really understand what's going on.
