When I arrived I didnt think there was going to be that many exhibits. I was wrong, to my surprise there was several. I found many of the exhibits filled with many informational facts about various things. I definently enjoyed the exhibits with the gems and the history of L.A.. But that's just my opinion. I definitely would go again.
