I have taken my daughter here several times and we always have fun. Admission is very reasonably priced and allow access to the children's museum, as well as art exhibits on upper floors, and the small aquarium/planetarium next door. There is a lot to see and do, so plan to spend an afternoon. The aquarium is quite small but has a cool area where you can pet sharks and sting rays! They have permanent exhibits as well as featured ones, there is always something new and interesting to see and learn about!
It can be a bit confusing to find due to the awful one way streets in Hickory. I never have trouble getting there, but I usually have problems getting back to the interstate, so if you have a GPS, bring it!
My only real complaint about this place is that it does not have snack machines or a place to get food/drink. Other than that, it's great!
