Awesome and fun place to bring everyone in your family! They have things from movies to a submarine. Sometimes they have exclusive events, like recently they has this whole section educating you on how Pixar movies are made. PRICES: Very budget friendly and reasonable. PARKING: When it's busy you can still find parking, just might have to walk a little far. LOCATION: It has a beautiful view of the Columbia river, and if you would like you can rent bikes and ride along the path.
Now this place is an example of 'thinking outside the box'. I am particularly intrigued by the reenactment of the different species of dinosaurs, and the fact that they have some movement and make sounds. Lovely and amazing place to go and get wowed!
