We stopped by knowing we were just doing the free Discovery center. They had a few neat exhibits to entertain our kids 5 and 9 for a little bit. We would love to do the tour next time when we are in the area.

It's got some interesting displays and if you're in the neighboring area, it's worth stopping in, but it's not worth a special trip.
