By A Yahoo Contributor, 1/18/09
I was really excited to take my kids because I remeber as a kid it was really cool. there was really noting to do especaly for the outrageus price. the fish exipit was pretty cool but it stoped there. I was personaly excited to see the les paul exibit but was very disapinted when i couldnt even play one guitar. not much hands on or anything for that matter
This place is fabulous. My kids and I love everything about it. The scavenger hunt on the ship was great. They spent 45 minutes just in there. The aquarimum is unbelievable. Can't believe you can put your hands in by sharks and sting rays. Let alone shrimp and sea urchants. Very educational and fun. Thank you so much for bringing this great place to Milwaukee.
Exterior of the place is really amazing. It draws you in. Making you wonder, what kind of special treat could be awaiting you inside. Well it's very deceiving. Once inside it welcomes you, perhaps something special, its an illusion. There was nothing there. An empty beautiful shell that left you with many regrets. I paid $15 dollars to look at empty walls. I recommend you see a movie with that money.
What a waste of money. The place is overpriced while the museum isn't even complete yet. I loved walking in on unfinished rooms while there was nothing to do. I expected fun, interactive things to do. Instead, I found random displays that explained nothing about how it worked. The electronics in the technology department rarely worked right, if at all. Navigation through the place was poorly planned also. There was only one elevator that moved everyone from the parking garage to the first and second floors - leaving the stairs hidden from an alternative means to get to another floor at your convenience. The place looks great from the outside but the inside has bare walls and cement floors. Let me tell you that you should not waste your time and money. Maybe when the place is complete it might have potential but now it is a pointless trip that will leave you disappointed.
This is not a quality attraction for the money. When I was there last the exhibits hadn't changed for some time. A lot of exhibits were broken and non-functioning. I found the staff rude and the bathrooms were very unclean. Graffiti in some of the stalls and paper toweling all over the floor. The biggest attraction was the video studio but it was never open. Overall a bad experience.
