Went here on a date night and it was a very pleasant experience. Went on a weekday in the evening so it was not crowded. Very nice atmosphere. Interesting stuff to see. Good all around. Good place to bring out of town guests also.

I see someone else gave you specific $$s, but overall I'd say it was way more expensive per person than worth it.
