  • Interesting place, definitely worth a visit. I'd say try to go before walking around signal Hill or doing the trails, it gives you background knowledge for what you'll see! The presentation was very cool, though be prepared for the waterfall!! You don't get wet, but I was seriously concerned that a pipe had burst! Informative and easy to navigate. We didn't walk through the outdoor area due to weather, but I wish we would have.
  • Amazing place to learn of the history of our planet! It also has a lot of information about space and out offshore oil industry
