We only viewed the Katrina portion, but it was powerful and informative. A good stop to add a bit of edjumakashun to your road trip, my nine-year-old and I combed through the entire exhibit for nearly two hours. Sobering and sad, but not overwhelming. More sensitive subtopics can be skipped over or indulged as you like with video, audio, and descriptive panels. One area contains a man's diary he wrote on his apartment walls during the disaster is malted clearly as containing profanity and other adult references (alcohol, tobacco). Lots to learn about history, society, humanity, civil engineering, and environmental science.
