    If you go for a 5pm IMAX on a weekday you don't have to pay museum admission! I saw "Wild Africa", AMAZING!

    Good place for a quick trip. Check to see what the visiting exhibit is. The different climate areas are disappointing -- just some stuffed animals. Their IMAX shows are generally very good.

    The Mayans were fascinating: they monitored the sky every night and via extensive record keeping were able to predict astronomical phenomena because they kept perfect records for hundreds of years.
