I love this place so much. I felt like I was flying after I left. As a Writer, I can't inspired and uplifted. It was J the most technically saavy museum I've been to. It represents what the future of learning can be if we use the resources they had everything I could imagine being necessary in such a modern museum. I can't wait to go back seriously.
