  • Included for free in our Universal Studios ticket, so we visited. It's a beautiful space and very well set out, but we don't feel we learned all that much and wouldn't specifically pay to go in and...  more »

  • The museum is filled with interesting facts that are presented in various ways, some are interactive while others are shown in holographic. Such methods capture visitors attention easily and the information are broken down into small pieces that can be absorbed easily into visitor's mind. The experience is awesome and it is recommended for kids to learn and explore.
  • A pretty decent museum in my opinion. You can go around it in detail in about an hour. There is a side show on for an extra 3 dollars so considering all this, I'd probably say it isn't worth the $12 entrance fee. However, if the ticket is bought in conjunction with the aquarium ticket or another exhibition (in my case I paid $15 for this and the One Piece exhibition, which was fantastic, might I add) then it becomes very worthwhile. On its own, not so much...^_^
