It is fun that all of the different museums are right there in one spot with one admission. The history museum was especially interesting to us.

Only visited the science museum, but it was really cool. There was a dinosaur exhibit and multiple preserved animals. There was also some live fish on the lower floor. Gift shop is expensive!

The science museum includes natural history, astronomy and geology. The history museum has old cars, motorcycles and a room dedicated to board games. And the Dr. Seuss museum is included. Fantastic place to visit all around.
