We knew the center was under renovation, but I was still stunned a bit when we arrived! We came to see the special exhibit "Star Wars: The Power of Costume" at noon and walked through with relatively little conjestion on a Saturday.

WE just went for the Viking exhibit and there is not much else to see right now. I always try to use AAA when I can as it often seems to offer the best discount.
