  • I suppose they get an E for effort on this review. Vehicle search from high school drop security guard: check. Complete search inside museum and all metal objects placed in bin because of walk through metal detector (w/wand) like Superior Court: check. Not being able to get in because I had cigarettes and lighter: priceless. I'm going to have to give this a Jay score of 0. Not recommended. The LAST time this place wastes my time. I heard it was overrated anyways. Not really a museum more of interactive slide show thing. What they need to put on the website is a warning of what not is allowed into the museum.
