    Loved this place! I really loved the exhibit on the first floor. The top floor was undergoing some renovations so this review is only a 4. But overall, fun little place. I would definitely return and recommend to people visiting.

    My husband and I loved this museum. We spent several hours looking at a lot of the exhibits. The staff wad very knowledgeable about different areas. We learned several unpublished facts. Would recommend it.

    Treasures-R-Us. A lot of vaguely-described stuff ranging from a "Rare Urn" to a "Sport Coat Worn by John Wayne On Screen." Seems like someone with an extensive and expensive souvenir collection hired high school students to add documentation using Google. The first floor has fossils, including a t-rex skeleton. Also a jumble of ancient and not-so-ancient artifacts including Roman coins, antique pottery and a slab of the Berlin Wall. The second floor looks like it was bought up at liquidation sale for one of those autograph stores that sprang...Read More

Treasures-R-Us. A lot of vaguely-described stuff ranging from a "Rare Urn" to a "Sport Coat Worn by John Wayne On Screen." Seems like someone with an extensive and expensive souvenir collection hired high school students to add documentation using Google. The first floor has fossils, including a t-rex skeleton. Also a jumble of ancient and not-so-ancient artifacts including Roman coins, antique pottery and a slab of the Berlin Wall. The second floor looks like it was bought up at liquidation sale for one of those autograph stores that sprang up in shopping malls a decade or so ago. It's mostly random documents signed by famous people framed with pictures of the people. One gem is a letter from the current Duke of Marlborough thanking the museum's founder for showing him a photocopy of a letter signed by a previous Duke of Marlborough. The third floor has movie and sports memorabilia including a basketball signed by the 2008 Jayhawks. The World Treasurers Media Center sells copies of "Walking with Dinosaurs" and some History Channel DVDs. The shop sells a huge variety of replica knives and swords and little glass bottles. It's $10/person to get in. Probably worth it if your kids like fossils.
