What a surprise and a fun morning, the adults enjoyed themselves as much as the 4 1/2 year old did. Lots of hands o for the kids and lots of well documented exhibits for the adults.

- Interesting to see some of the "old" museum exhibits with some of the newest additions that are more STEAM (STEM, with A for arts) focused. Sounds like they are making the place brighter and more hands on stuff. - Small place, but enough to...More

I would say preschool through maybe 3rd grade though there are some things, like the titanic exhibit that would interest adults and older kids. The vast majority is ideal for the younger age group.
