Special Exhibitions:

• Sea Lions: Life by a Whisker Dive into the world of a rare Australian sea lion pup and meet the people who are trying to save her species in this immersive giant-screen film. Discover a classic coming-of-age tale that takes place in a colony of sea lions living between a jagged cliff face and a roaring ocean, in an environment as harsh as it is beautiful. • Sharks:

Older than dinosaurs—and more threatened than threatening—sharks are spectacular, surprising, and often misunderstood. Dive into the world of this amazingly diverse group of animals in the new exhibition, Sharks. • Worlds Beyond Earth: Worlds Beyond Earth tells the story of the surprisingly dynamic nature of the worlds that share our solar system and the unique conditions that make life on Earth possible. Captioning devices are available.

The museum was wonderful. However, the process of getting our ticket was not. We had to wait in a 45 minute line even though we had purchased our ticket online. We thought by purchasing the ticket online we could avoid the lines but that was not the case at the museum. Therefore, the time we had in the museum had to be shortened because we spent 45 of our precious minutes standing in line.

It is an amazing museum; four floors of interesting and education exhibits. So much to see. Make a plan in advance of where to start. Next time I think we would start at the top floor and work our way down. The food court is not bad. Paying the extra for special exhibits was worth it.

A lot to see! We wish we had more time there. The only downside is there are not a lot of restrooms and it can be confusing following the map. They could use better signage. Overall, amazing content! So mush to see and our kids and us adults enjoyed it!
