Family of 5 this time. Kids looked this place up on web and wanted to visit. Great variety of artifacts. HUGE area of military stuff. Very small area for sports. Mummies were neat. Dinosaurs were a favorite for the kids.

A hodgepodge collection. The first floor was definitely the most interesting for my family. My granddaughter enjoyed doing the scavenger hunt. Nice Old Town location.

This museum is worth traveling to see. I would recommend this over many larger museums in larger cities. There is a fantastic collection of artifacts here. There's plenty to see for all ages, but also a document area that kids will likely be bored by. This is a must see.

This museum is really cool. A very eclectic mix of artifacts, from Dinosaur bones to real mummies and shrunken heads, to movie artifacts and pieces of literary history. We very much enjoyed this museum. Make sure you have a few hours to enjoy it all!

There are 3 levels to this museum and it covers everything from the dinosaurs to the modern day. We spent about 3 hours there and even skipped a few exhibits just because... More
