What a great way to spend the day with your family learning and having fun. We literally were there from open to close and still didn’t see everything! My 10 year old had a blast learning about electricity and couldn’t get enough watching the butterflies. My husband and I also had fun, it was like we were kids on a field trip! I also recommend the planetarium. It was really cool!
I really loved the Body Worlds exhibit and highly recommend it just because it's so unique but overall, the museum seems pretty headed towards children so I didn't enjoy the other exhibits as much. Also, you need to pay extra on top of the museum ticket in order to view some of the exhibits (most of which are the highlights).
