OK
Took my family and 8 yr old son who loves indian history. I was very disappointed not int he center, it was small but well done with written explanations. My problem was the staff who basically ignored us. THey had just done a tour of 4th graders and i guess were tired becuase of the 6-7 people who were there, not one offered to help or explain. Sad.
