This museum is a lot of fun. There is a lot on display here. It is certainly worth the money. There are a lot of interactive displays which made things even more fun. My favorite thing was seeing the OJ chase Bronco on display.

There is a lot going on in this museum . We were a little concerned at the start with the middle ages , but it really took off fast into some very good history and interactive displays.
