    The Submarine U505 and the coal mine are great and there is much more of interest at the museum. You need a whole day to see it all. The exhibits were for the most part in good condition and working.

    Went here as we had city pass. It was pretty neat seeing everything this museum had. I remember the t rex and I love how the museum is near the lake. Great for kids. To me it’s a one and done.

    This museum was great! Several floors full of paintings, statues, surgical instruments and facts about the first surgeons. Very interesting and well done. The woman at the front desk was delightful. It was a little pricey but worth it!

    Everyone was very nice! All exhibits/studies were voluntary! Learned something new about how my brain works.

    Definitely should come down on the price point, maybe 10-15 worth of exhibits to really see. Kinda bored but made the most of the money spent
