    Kids loved it! Been here a few times. Worth the trip - make sure call to find out what is available and what is not. Free days are a bit more full. Kids under 10 will have a great time. Historic attractions are very interesting and informative. Not Six Flags or Disney, but for seven bucks, you get a lot more. Again, it's for kids...and fun adults :).
