Interactive, fun and educational. This museum got the attention of our active 6 year old, and our eye rolling teen. The exhibits are very engaging and you are taken into the time or place it is displaying. We even watched a Charlie Chaplin movie without hesitation. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were able to leave our luggage in the storage room for a while and, they were so helpful.
My favorite museum in the whole world. Worth every penny. Their featured exhibits are always really interesting. I love the sound room in the natural history sections, and the walls of native languages that you can listen too. The taxidermy is out of this world as well. I have remembered them fondly as a little girl, and as an adult seeing them again was really special. You need several days to see everything!
