Closed Thanksgiving and Christmas.Fun for all ages We purchased season passes and have been several times during the last few months. The best time to go is right when it opens (before the school groups get there) or after lunch (once the school groups leave). My 3 kids ages 2-7 love going! I even learn and enjoy trying different things out with the kids while we are there. Some of their favorite exhibits are the paper airplane launcher and the weather simulator! No food allowed in the museum so we take a break and have a little picnic near the check in area. We paid extra for the planetarium once with friends. The older kids (7 and 8) thought it was really cool but the younger (2-5) were only interested for the first few mins. If you have younger kids I'd skip it. It's a lot of talking and facts. Overall and fun place to visit, explore and learn. Oh and don't forget to take your parking ticket in for validation at the check in desk for a discount on parking fees.
