We had a great time and enjoyed all the different aspects of the center. The gift shop was great. Great things to pick up for gifts and shirts were wonderful.

I think the museum can be enjoyed by children and adults. We went to the aquarium and it's small so after that we visited this museum. The time to see the exhibits depends, but I would say 2 or 3 hours in a slow pace.
