Was very interesting and had a lot of information for kids. Definitely worth a visit if you have kids. A good indoor activity for a hot summer afternoon.

Our family enjoyed seeing all of the displays. It could use some more recent record breaking facts. There are some interactive elements. Overall not bad if you enjoy things like that. It helped us to cool of a bit from the heat.
