Hello, Bob! Can you tell me how long it would take to see the museum in its entirety? I'm flying down from Seattle and want to know whether I need to book an overnight stay or if I can do it in a day. Thank you, Marian Smith

Q:
Will a curious and bright 5 year old be frightened? This particular child is quite well behaved and has visited many museums, but I'm concerned that the subject matter might be a bit too much.
A:
Nothing would frighten a 5-year-old. All the mummified animals and people are in one room, so you can avoid that room if you think the child might be freaked out.
Q:
What is the best way to get there from San Francisco without a car
A:
You can take a Caltrain from San Francisco to San Jose which is very convenient. From the station you can take an Uber.
Q:
One last thing. Do they have any food there?
A:
There is a restaurant and Starbucks right across the street from the Museum. Enjoy your visit!
