We had a wonderful experience at the museum. We were in the area and had a free day, so stopped by. Had no idea what to expect and were pleasantly surprised that both our 7- and 11-year old found exhibits and activities to interest them. There is plenty for younger kids to see/do as well. This is not a large space, but well planned out, with many separate spaces. A nice mix of quiet and active spaces. A huge thank you to the staff that tracked us down at our hotel to return my wallet, which I had accidentally left behind!
