    Not a lot has changed with the exhibits since I was young. I take my daughter there and she enjoys it. Many of the interactive exhibits were not functioning the last 2-3 times we went.

    Resembles a slimmed-down version of the Chicago Field Museum - for a much cheaper entrance fee (FREE). The Titanic exhibit was alright - but way overpriced. Haven't tried IMAX theater yet but I've heard from lots of people that it's a really awesome 3D experience.

    Great place to run the kids around for 2 or 3 hours as we pass through traveling. Always a traveling exhibit that keeps things fresh.
