The Great Storm film is educational and moving describing the horror of the storm, it's aftermath, and the civic response from the survivors.

Ask the kids, it was boring. I thought it was I interesting but could have been much better. The Great Storm reminded me of an educational video you would watch in 2nd grade. It was a great way to cool off after the dolphin tour.

This film is located at Pier 21 and takes you back to the storm of 1900 that devastated this city and killed 6,000. The room was completely quiet as you listen and take in the information. It's about 25 min. long and costs $6. Probably best for kids over age 10 and if they are interested in history.

Not a bad little show, while waiting to be seated the guy selling tickets told us how to find the historical marker located a few blocks away to help us tie the history and the movie together. Wish we had time to of watched some of the other shows offered.

If you collect those tourist pressed pennies they have a machine for The Great Storm, a 1900 hurricane that hit the area which is explained in one of the other movies offered.

Note: this is a video, not an IMAX. It provides historical background for the 1900 hurricane though it wasn't produced all that well and isn't exactly captivating. However, I think it's still worth a visit of you're in the area.
