The CELL is a one of a kind educational experience providing both historical and citizen preparedness information to the public. They are fabulous partners with our preparedness programs here at the State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. I highly recommend The CELL!

This exhibit was interesting, insightful, and educational. They do a great job of making such a complex topic simple for you to understand, while also making it engaging. Now I want to learn more about this topic. The front staff was friendly.
