This little free museum is a great place for kids and adults. It has a great short movie showing the building of the bridge. I say take a break from shopping and go upstairs and see some history and engineering.

Loved learning about the Bridge. Being from MI I loved seeing and hearing all the history about how the bridge came to be. The video shown was great telling how it all happened. I will go back and take my kids!
