We watched the Last Jedi with the kids and we all had a blast. The kids watched a few days before some of the documentaries. The experience was great, the sound and image really take you in.

Nice to enjoy various exhibits in one area. Musical, historical and some art. Mostly documents and some visual. Has Stevie Ray Vaughn exhibit, slave exhibits and aerospace and plane exhibits. Schools visit alot during the week. Three floors of exhibits and IMAX section is nice.
