    If you are going as a family, check out the family membership. Its a great value ... with a surprise discount it turned out to be the same price as one visit. Bonus we skipped the line for tickets!

    My favorite way to relax is to spend an hour or two wandering around the High. Not only a great way to relax and unwind it is also inspiring if you have any creative juices flowing through your body.

    The IMAX film on our planet was awesome. I will definitely go back for more movies. Live music prior with tapas , but the best thing was their encouraging us to bring our martini's into the theatre.

    A nice museum. It has a lot of stuff and can get overwhelming. Remember to check and see if you have a membership to a museum with reciprocal agreements. It can save you $$$.

    Friday night jazz program and visiting exhibitions are what shine here. Regular collection is solid but expected and uninteresting.
