Haven't been in years- but when we did go- the place was a blast for little kids- a lot for them to do- a real learning, hands on museum! I think you can get coupons to get a discount on fee.

My 9 year old loved the exhibit that was a mystery. You had to solve clues to figure out a crime. They also loved sitting in the Oval Office.
