Only spend a few hours, but would really need a few days to see everything. Was a bit difficult to find way around as there are quite a few levels but all in all a good place to visit.

Hi, I believe it's $10.00 per day... there is no free parking around the area. It's totally worth it as you will be spending most of your day there. Lots of great things to see and do. I hope this was helpful...enjoy!
