What a wonderful way to learn about our world and enjoy the fascinating exhibits. Wish the palace was open, but the 3D movie and planetarium were a joy.

I agree with the answer above. It is self-directed, so you may take as long as you like. Don't forget that there are IMAX show and an excellent planetarium, too. You could easily spend the day there!
