I took my 3 grandchildren, 2 boys age 9 and a girl age 6, to the museum for Wonderful Wednesday. They had a great time at each activity in the museum. We spent about 4 hours there. It was an excellent place to go.

Good place for a field trip with the kids or in our case, an afternoon date. They have some interesting displays and a planetarium show, although we didn't get there in time for that. Last show is at 3:30.

There is a fee - not donations only as someone else stated. The cost, however is minimal. I believe it was $7.00 for seniors and under $10.00 general admission. Can't remember for children but you might check their website
