Beautiful view and building but few exhibits. Can do in 1 hour. Not great for teens who are easily bored.

The views from the top are outstanding; however, there aren’t many interactive opportunities. Our older teens were bored. The adults enjoyed all the history. The film was interesting. The place has a lot of potential and I hope more interactive activities are added.

We got to the hotel early and to kill time the family and I went there and it was a fun time. Very informative and worth the few dollars it costs. even military discounts which is a nice touch.
