    This is a great museum if you have kids. It’s very interactive and have some nice displays. The only downside is that is very small (one floor of a huge building). It is nice that they have changing exhibits every few months. Didn’t hate it but didn’t love it.

    I didn’t hate the National Geographic Museum, but I didn’t love it either. What bumped it up from two to three stars was that their “Peruvian Gold” exhibit was really pretty awesome, albeit not very extensive at all. The artifacts on display were so interesting, and they were displayed in a great way — just wish there had been more to see. And, I was not at all impressed by the other two exhibits — “Mars Up Close” and then various photographs located around the exterior of the building. Although seeing a full scale model of the Curiosity rover was kind of neat, everything else was not that engaging. (For instance, the photos didn’t even really have captions for context.) Given the steep admission fee ($11 for adults), I would not go back again.

    One of the best museums in the city, esp if you are looking for something a little lower key and not as much of a time commitment. Check out the live events too because they really get some incredible speakers to tell adventure stories!

    We went to see the pirate ship. My grandson loves pirates and seemed suitably impressed even though through my jaded viewpoint it was a bit lame. The dioramas were good. Some of the other exhibits of photographs reminded me of a relation (grandmother’s uncle?) that used to be a National Geographic photographer that I met once — I did not find his work at this visit but a Google for Victor Boswell as a NG photographer did turn up some of his work! Thus, not a wasted visit.
