We visited this museum on a chilly wet day so we only got to experience the indoor portion of the facility. I was told that the gardens and other outdoor features were really good but we did not get to experience them. The indoor exhibits were good and interactive and they did appeal to the children in our group even though they did not read all the information. This is an exhibit that is presented from a Christian perspective and it is very well done . There are lots of interesting “nooks and crannies” to explore and special lectures and movies available each day. We spent about 4 hours there and that was adequate without the gardens. We bought a combo ticket with the ark and that saved us money. This is the best one to see first if possible. The food available was good and reasonably priced.
