Wonderful day outing for our ages 11 and 7 kids. Hands on experiences of all kinds, we all had a great time. Special area for 5 and under kids to enjoy. Family outing or school field trips, you won't be let down!

Reasonably priced, $19 for two adults and one child (8 years old); that was with a discount and NO imax tickets. For the most part we had a good time, great for kids, tons of hands on displays, build and conduct different “experiments” in the hands on hall Cons: attended while two elementary schools were on field trip, would advise to try and go on a day were this is not the case; many of the displays were broken/did not function correctly Overall experience was good, and for the money a great way to spend a few hours without much harm on the wallet!!

My friend and I enjoyed viewing the museum and tour of the home of Jefferson Davis. It was interesting to note that he had had a black child to live with them as a member of their family before moving to Mississippi. The home is quite lovely and filled with antiques. In one of the smaller twin houses that flank each side of the homestead, a movie depicting the damage suffered during Hurricane Katrina was playing. However, don't miss the opportunity to check put the side of the building where quotes from Jefferson Davis are etched. Also spend some time under the towering magnolias where Jefferson Davis also went to pray and do Bible study.

Decently priced and fun play area for young kids. However the feature exhibit and upstairs area was filled with mostly broken things. We specifically went for Curious George. We followed him and waited in line so my son could hug him and take a picture like all the other children but the character left, with us being the only ones left out. He never came back. It was disappointing. We wouldn't have waited in line so long if we knew he was just going to leave.

Absolutely loved the trip. We had an amazing time as usual. Will definitely be back to see another IMAX movie
