    The gem vault had a stunning array of samples. It was fun to search for your birthstone and find the different colors that it was represented in.

    Trip advisor saved me $45 off 4 adult tickets. This museum is really worth your time. We didn’t pay for any “extra “ exhibits, didn’t need to. We spent a good five hours here and could have stayed a couple more. Excellent!

    We are members, take our granddaughter (3.5 years) there several times/year to see the butterfly and dinosaur exhibits. She also appreciates the jewel vault (princess necklaces). We always go see the Faberge exhibit, which is outstanding.
