As she does so well, my mother dragged me and my family out to this museum (Mom loves museums, while the rest of us tend to dread them). However, this time she was right - this is a very interesting place to learn more about history and our recent past. I really enjoyed the interactivity of all of it. We went there during the holidays, when they had a huge display of Christmas trees from around the world. It was really nifty to see how other cultures decorate for the holidays. The views from high up top looking down into Simi Valley were equally breath-taking.
