Incredible. The history covered is tremendous, and some displays are crowded, but it’s very high quality and engaging.

Your admission is good for a week and if you get a chance to visit (or return) on Saturdays when 89 year old Larry Rivera does his ukulele show in the museum courtyard don't miss it!

Yes, it's a small museum so it depends on how in depth you want to get. We were there about an hour and a half, partly because we stopped to listen to a lecture that was going on.
