I love finding the free days and bring our grand daughters here. It is one of our favorite places to visit especially if there is a special exhibit.

This was a great museum, we went during the Vikings exhibit. There were also some other interesting permanent exhibits as well, the gemstone exhibit being my favorite by far. To be honest I did feel a little out of place I felt it was more...More

I think it is worth it. Most of it is not geared for kids. If kids bother you, wait until school starts then go during the week. We wanted to see the Viking display which ends prior to school starting otherwise we would... More
