Must-visit for Star Trek fans as their exhibit has loads of costumes and props. I gasped when I saw Khan's costume. The fantasy exhibit was really cool too. Great for adults and kids.

Jim Henson and Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie were the only exhibits at this time. It is a small venue, quirky but fun. They also have regular ongoing exhibits.

I don't know what special exhibit will be there but we did find parts of it enjoyable and I am over 65. Some parts were more interesting than others.
