Don't bother. It's a very "local's only" atmosphere for Queens transplants. The entire experience was sub-par. I would not recommend it to anyone.

Been there twice with kids' school trips. Plenty to see and walk around. Staff is very good and imparts historical information at a good pace and with interest. Hands-on activities for kids too. Trip can be completed in 2 hours without missing anything.
