    Don't come in expecting A Night at the Museum. Skip the kiosks and purchase tickets at the counter for however much you can donate that day. We got 6 tickets for $20.

    Interessantes Museum allerdings fehlt eine Route der man folgen kann. Also sehr zerlaufen und übersichtlich. Gibt aber eine App die halbwegs einem hilft.
