I spent a full day, nine years after my last visit. I always say, "vote with your dollars," and I had so much fun, and learning, that I bought a membership when my day was done for my thanks, and hopes of a return soon.

Went on a rainy holiday weekend, which worked to our favor. Kids had a great time, and we learned a ton. Staff was very friendly, and willing to answer all of our questions. Definitly worth the trip.
