I have enjoyed going to this museum several times over the past ten years. The exhibits are very well done and well-displayed. I saw a Rodin exhibit here which was of interest to adults as well and children.

We have been here many times and have always enjoyed it. There are permanent, as well as, temporary exhibits. The planetarium shows are always professionally done. The cost to go into this museum is very reasonable.
