I really enjoyed this museum. The guide was really in character. My kids liked it, but they didn't last too long (3 and 2). I think kids who are 5 and up would probably like it a lot.

If I remember correctly it was not long, you can do the tour which was maybe a half hour maybe 45min, but well worth the tour. Or you can just go look through the museum on your own!
