This is, by far, the worst museum we have seen in s long time (a sentiment shared by other visitors who shared their astonishment). It is the proverbial "the emperor wears no clothes" moment. The permanent exhibit will take we you all of 10 minutes...More

We spent a couple hours viewing and interacting with this well thought out interactive treatise of humanity's greatest challenges - both self-inflicted and natural. Great way to present and discuss these with otherwise distracted teenagers.

Spent the afternoon having lunch at the IRCR. They have the museum at the bottom level which takes about an hour and half with an audio guide. Didn't have the time to take the tour but was able to look around and take some pictures.
