Kids and adults alike will love these museums!

There are three museums in one trip. The Public Museum and Dinosaur Discovery Museum have FREE general admission. The Civil War Museum only $7 for Adults, kids 15 & under FREE! LOTS to look at, interactive displays. Kids loved the Dinosaurs, Grandma loved the Civil War displays & the buildings were all handicapped accessible so it worked out great! We all enjoyed the ride on the Street car. Recommend to anyone, any age!
