  1. Exhibit for 4 ppl $198.00(plus or minus) plus $30 parking. The exhibit was not guided or given direction. As you walk through, some areas are already playing and you don’t know where it begins or ends. The last area, this one you would like to stay and try to get the entire story, but there are so many people sitting on the “boat” that it makes this impossible. I wanted to support the gift shop and did spend another $100.00 (that was my personal choice). We went through this is about 35 min. and were disappointed. To make this successful, there needs to be guidance and control so you know where to start to hear/see the stories. Just a disappointment for $230.00 for 35 minutes. Just know what you are in for. Believe me, I feel bad giving this review, but it is the truth.

  2. Perhaps I didn’t research this exhibit enough. I was expecting some actual artifacts to view and thought the information presented was going to be in some sort of film, not hieroglyphics. The price of $43.50/ticket (X2) for a recent Friday morning (10:30AM) was more than I was expecting to pay, and then a $12 service fee was tacked on. There were not that many people (maybe about 18- 24 total) for this time slot. We took our time going through the exhibit, reading everything that appeared throughout the exhibit. The final area with the boat, the exhibit was midway through so we sat and waited then caught it from beginning to end as it is on an endless loop. We looked at our watch and each other when it ended and said “that’s it?” Both of us disappointed with the overall experience…we really took our time and spent just barely an hour at the exhibit. We headed to the gift shop and found that downright outrageous. I bought a book to add the the classroom library, ($8.00/ credit cards only!) Everything in this shop was so overpriced and I refused to purchase anything else after the soaking I took on the tickets for a mediocre experience. After reading further, apparently I bought tickets for ‘high peak’ times! There were barely any cars in the parking lot and the place was in no way crowded or at capacity. It makes me wonder how they classify ‘high peak’. In a nutshell, I’d save the $$ and find something different to do.
