    If you want to go into the ticketed exhibits it's worth buying a membership since it's good a year from purchase and gives you free tickets every time you come. Pays for itself!

    If you're having a bad day or just need a smile, go to the 4th Level (19th Century) and there is a giant painting of the most serene cow. I have named him George, and he will make you smile.
