    This is a great place to spend an afternoon. The staff and volunteers were friendly and knowledgeable. The gift shop was a little sparse but all in all we had a fantastic visit.

    Do you really need to spend $8 a pop for history? This is a money-making venture, not a museum. The exhibits are reproductions, and other museums have originals. Yes, all the information is in one place, but that's why we have Wikipedia. There are far better museums with less pushy front desk people (mine was very hesitant to give me any information about the museum without me paying) and lower admission prices. If you're going to pay more, you should get more, and this doesn't deliver.
