Had an amazing tour around the museum from a well knowledged guide and was helpful and answered every question that she got. Over-all the museum is great and is cool how it changes what they have out on display every so often.

Visiting with little granddaughter just walking, was so good to see a space downstairs for children to explore and stretch their imagination. Not confined to little ones, but activities for all sages to explore and learn in.
