I first came here on a field trip when I was a kid. Now I have taken my kids here. They were really fascinated - never once did I get the "I'm bored, can we go?" Plenty of parking, and friendly staff to help answer questions...

Excellent for a rainy day. Well done exhibits, not as thorough as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, but less wearing.
