Such a great place for everyone to explore! The lightning/electricity show is always a favorite. Make sure you plan your trip to coincide with one of the show times!

How many school field trips have I taken to this museum? Too many to count! But even as an adult, it's fun. Tons of hands-on exhibits for the kids, and they often have fun exhibits like Star Wars or Harry Potter coming through as well. The electricity show is one of my favorite stops, every time. As for the Omni Theater, it really depends on what's showing. The theater itself is not enough for me to shell out the extra money.
