Well being from Maryland originally and having the Smithsonian to go to which is free for all of the museums, I wasn't terribly impressed with this place. What can I say, I'm spoiled. I personally think it was to exspenive. But with that being said, I really think that kids will love this place. It's Dinosaurs! So even thought it's not on my list of things to do I'd recommend this place for families with little ones.
