It was surprising to see so many research lab areas set up in conjunction with exhibits. My toddler loved walking through to see the different "areas" of NC. We parked right on the street next to the museum (2 hour max until 5) and we could've easily stayed for 3 solid hours. Plus, the museum itself was free!! Great stop if you are traveling through town.

Cute little Earth replica on the outside of the building. Great spot for pictures.
