We visited Sunday in October and had the place to ourselves. A nice blend of history, science, and entertainment. We had two teenagers, 60 somethings and 40 somethings. Everyone had a good time together and learning some interesting things. Better than GOOGLE!

History component of museum is amazing. Did not have time to see science component. Definitely worth seeing again, next time in town. Wish the front areas films we're not up for repair.

The museum was just ok. It had some artifacts but wasn’t really presented well. Most item told you what they are but didn’t get any more information than that.
