As other have noted, it is primarily a children's activity (although younger adults could benefit from the historical and...More

The gift Shop is very nice, and the museum is right there as well. We did not visit the museum on this outing. Price a little high ($8.00 for Adults) NO SENIOR DISCOUNTS. But the center has a nice overlook of the river and area.
