    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.

    Although it is vast with a range of displays the organisation and signage make it nigh on impossible to find some things, particularly the Planetarium. However the response from a manager was *shrug*
