Great exhibits about space exploration. Lots of hands on activities for children but interesting for adults too. Good visuals, time lines and artifacts. Enjoyed the Dome Theater.

There were dozens of exhibits encouraging both the young and inquisitive to conduct science exhibits. We found much of the information quite interesting, even for us seniors. There is an IMAX theater to watch if desired. A grab-n-go cafe is in the basement.

I think the museum can be enjoyed by children and adults. We went to the aquarium and it's small so after that we visited this museum. The time to see the exhibits depends, but I would say 2 or 3 hours in a slow pace.
