Fantastic display of the Indian culture. Also prehistoric history. Lots of hands-on for children. Spend at least two hours minimum there. Has a gift shop and cafe. For an extra charge it has a wonderful IMAX theater. Definitely a must-see stop for all ages.More

The new laser projection is very clear and the 3D is terrific , things from the screen fly right up to your face, and you want to duck when the birds fly right at you. The new sound system is truly a delight for listening.

We have been annual membership holders for several years. The theatre offers a huge screen, an excellent sound system, and comfortable seats. The IMAX movies are all very well done and the topics are interesting. The theatre also offers full length, first run Hollywood movies.
