My friends and I wanted to see the Pompeii exhibit, which was absolutely wonderfully done. We also enjoyed wandering around the other areas of the science center and learned a ton of things...definitely can enjoy this with or without kids!

This museum is just for kids. For adults it is very lame. The price is high and then you have to pay extra for the planetarium and/or any current exhibit I wish I could get my money back.
