I took an International Exchange Student here. It was on his bucket list. Thoroughly enjoyable experience including the IMAX Dome Theatre. One interesting and educational exhibit after another. So much to learn for both kids and adults.

Hi, I believe it's $10.00 per day... there is no free parking around the area. It's totally worth it as you will be spending most of your day there. Lots of great things to see and do. I hope this was helpful...enjoy!
