Off the beaten path, but worth going for the movie (20 minutes long) which is different than the movie shown in the Visitor Center. This place is included with your discovery pass, and small aquarium across the street.

I believe this building is around 3 dollars to get into and 2 for kids. But I agree with the comment above- grab the discovery pass!
