I would not recommend this for children that young. It's dim, there is not really enough room for a stroller. But more importantly I think that some of the areas may be a bit scary for children that age especially the life like re-enact characters.

10 USD per person. 7.50 for kids (up to 12). 9.50 for seniors and 9.00 military. No other discounts. . They take credit cards. At the end, guide will ask for tips so have some cash if you feel this is appropriate.
