This a place to go with younger kids. It lacks why exhibits which can interests older kids. Entry queues are long on holidays. You could end up spending 30=40 minutes in entry queue. There is no difference even if you have bought entry tickets online.

If you only have older kids than 13 may take a pass. But it's a great place and lots to do. Found a Groupon so it was half price. Did six hours. Tired parents at the end.

In a nutshell, we took our 3 grandchildren there last week on a Wednesday and saw school buses in the lot. We expected it to be crowded but this was horrific. First off, they did not have enough people manning the ticket counter and we...More
