We will be visiting for the first time during Winter Break- though the notion of "free Thursday" is wonderful- just curious is it worth the crowd or better to go during another day of the week?
We are so excited that you have decided to visit! Our "free Thursdays" are very popular and we try our best to make it an easy experience for visitors. However, it can get somewhat crowded and during holidays Noah's Ark is likely to sell out. So, it is definitely easier to reserve Noah's Ark tickets in advance. This way you can make sure you and your family get into Noah's Ark when you want and you won't have to wait too long when you arrive.
However, if you don't plan to visit Noah's Ark, but are coming for our other exhibitions and/or to visit the Museum Store and Cafe, "free Thursdays" is a breeze. There usually aren't many lines (except for Noah's Ark tickets).
