Great for kids and the family. So many hands on activities and not a boring moment. Can spend a whole morning at the museum or if in a hurry, can do it in 3 hours minimum.

Fabulous museum that taps children's curious natures. Great activities and helpful college-age staff. However, a significant portion of the museum was unavailable because school trips had sole access to them. We paid full price for a third of available exhibits.

Fridays from 2-5 are free! We enjoyed the Hall of Science but it is very dated compared to children's and science attractions in DC and Boston. I would have been disappointed if we would have paid full entry price.

There is a large parking lot adjacent to for a $10 fee. However, if you get there early (right before it opens) you can get into parking lot for free.
