    See Sue first. We saved it for last and then almost ran out of time and felt rushed at the best part.

    They used to give all teachers free admission. Not anymore. If you're from out of state, don't bother with your ID. So much for one of the only generous side benefits of being a teacher.

    Some cases in the dioramas had weird labels and the IMAX was not really an IMAX. But the exhibits were cool.

    The Oceanic exhibit is closed indefinitely. I was so disappointed as this was what I came for, but the rest was great.

    Place gives me the creeps. It’s like a cross between a graveyard and a taxidermist’s office. I’ll be at TopGolf with a beer if you need me.

    Skip the Undergound Adventure -- my 11 & 13 year-old daughters didn't like it - neither did we. Ancient Egypt is where it's at. Onsite food choice is limited to McDonalds, vending machines, & a bakery
