There are amazing learning opportunities here and something for all ages. For those who will go frequently a membership is recommended. Admission for special exhibits is very expensive so if you are on a budget you will need to pick and choose the ones you want to go to. Special exhibit pricing is drastically reduced for members.

this place is awesome and so informative. I think I enjoyed it more than the kids. one of the kids got a chance to participate in a dissection class which was cool.
