I was really looking forward to this museum when I heard about it. I bought the Balboa Park passport and this was one of the included museums, but entry did not include the exhibit on torture which would have cost an additional $15. (This seemed weird/crazy high to me since regular adult admission is $12.50 w/o torture exhibit or $20 with. So, it seems that the torture exhibit add-on to the passport ticket should only cost $7.50)
The exhibits were really disappointing, they try to use video/audio clips to augment displays but it seemed like several were broken. We went to play with the archeological dig sand box and the brush fell apart in my hand. The Egyptian exhibit is tucked away in a small room & was under renovation which left half of the room empty and covered with tools. My husband was not impressed by the museum employee in the Egyptian room that was too busy checking her Facebook on her phone to look up/greet visitors.
