Way bigger than we expected. The variety of exhibits is astounding. The mummies are a MUST SEE. It feels like a Cliff’s notes version of the Smithsonian. Well worth the $8 admission.

From the entrance through the years and layers of history in a beautiful multi story down town building. A worthwhile experience. A full tour or just a few hours is rewarding.
