I attend with children ranging from 8-12 years old. At first they seem interested but the longer we stayed, they seemed to grow more bored. The museum is HUGE and it's easy to spend hours there if you visit each exhibit. For an adult and 1 child, admission was close to 60$. Parking was free (which is a plus). As soon as you walk in, there's a Cafe area and it includes a Starbucks. Overall it's a good family place but I would say younger kids would probably enjoy it more.
We love this museum!! My children get to learn and explore 4 floors and an outdoor area catering to them. I suggest packing a lunch, the food is comparable to fast food but double the price. Sanitizing stations we're located everywhere, and the grounds were spotless. We purchased annual passes plus 2 guest, each time we go we start at a different level. Very impressed by the friendly staff each treating the kids with kindness and interest.
