Unlike, say, the "Star Wars" exhibit from a few years ago, the artifacts and information here were authentic and deepened our children's understanding of the real world. And unlike the Einstein exhibit from a few years ago, I didn't feel like there was any "filler" material to make the exhibit take up enough space, nor was there "dumbing down" of material to make it more accessible at the cost of accuracy.
My only complaint is that, given that you are the Museum of Science, there was not more attention given to the sciences of archaeology and/or vulcanology. I do think that this exhibit was appropriate for a science museum because archaeology is indeed a science, but I would have liked if if you had been able to make that connection more explicitly.
But this is a mere quibble; we spent two glorious hours in this exhibit, and we've been recommending it to all our friends. Congratulations on a first-class presentation. This is the sort of exhibit that makes me glad to be a member and a supporter of your important institution.
