Andrew, the docent on duty, did me a solid and showed me the back shops and a few of the items they were working on including some 3D printed items he is doing. The back shop is not a huge space, but it is very well organized and has a couple of great work surfaces and lots of storage.
The layout was well signed with informational plaques at each scene.

|Happy to see Frank represented. I think this is one of the more recent additions according to Andrew. I love seeing this in 1/4"=1'-0" scale - it's like a drawing come to life!|
I will freely admit that I am usually disappointed by public-oriented displays like this, but this is an exception to that rule. There were very well thought out scenes, subtle animation, well-composed view angles, good documentation, just plain excellent modeling all over. Plus it was fun for kids and adults alike. What more could one ask for?
