Very cute museum which was worth our time. It was one of the few free things on our trip to Springfield. We got cute little cards to interact with some exhibits and they we're all quite interesting!

The ppl were super nice but the quality of the content was lacking. $5 fee, if I were you, I'd skip this bc there's tons to see in Springfield and I would've rather spent my time elsewhere.

Wonderful museum. My kids and I stopped while on a very long roadtrip and they all really enjoyed the interactive kids area in the lower level. I recommend stopping in if you have the time!
