We spent several hours at the museum with our 12 year old. Highly recommend. Be prepared to walk as there is so much to see.

Enjoyed a nice lunch at the cafe and an enjoyable walk thru the museum. Lots of information, well spread out and dispalyed. Love the lay out and the final view of the city from the top.

Remarkable but take all day to visit. We only had two hours so we only got to two floors. Apparently we should have gone to the lookout too!

I would have to give the same answers as already provided by other reviewers. There is the Inn at the Forks that could be checked out at well.
