    Mainly aimed at kids (I have none), but the special exhibit & IMAX Dome films are highly recommended for all & tickets to just those may be bought. Parking is on-site for $4.

    It's wonderful that military can go free, but it's not one of my favorite museums. I hear it is expanding under a new director of exhibits-- so there is hope yet.

    OK for young kids; not so much for adults. The IMAX theatre is fun, as is the butterfly exhibit. Expensive considering what is on offer.

    My one negative experience here: the teenage boys who work/volunteer there were incredibly inappropriate to my teenage sister. Stalking and "complimenting" will not get you a number!

    Do NOT eat at the cafeteria.... very slow, food poor quality. The special exhibit on Sea Monsters was great, but Foursquare discount did not apply. Pack your lunch and go off season.
