    the way I read that is that if asked about any of the vehicles there they'd tell you about it's personallity as a giant alien robot.

    This is perfect! My dad wanted to take us here a few weeks ago, but we where too late and I only live 3 hrs away! Finally, a TF thing I can make it to!

    Only 15 minutes long? Seems like that might have been a typo.

    There is usually a question and answer section to these presentations. Besides, I doubt the museum really understands the potential of how popular something like this could be.

    If Dik Daso doesn't know his stuff when it comes to TFs, he'd better hope there aren't any fanboys in attendance.

    I can see it now, an unsuspecting museum staff member reading a brief pre-scripted presentation on Transformers only to be picked apart and corrected ad nauseam by die-hard fans. Good luck, Dik.

    I guess it is a short blurb basically, and then that person is there to answer questions after. No big bells and whistles.

    However it is $15 for everyone in your car to get in and see an awesome museum, movie props, Jetfire protos, and Jetfire himself....well worth it to me.

    Really wanted to go there, but parking fees are like $15.00?! I'm not that close to there, so another exceptible reason.

    I dunno, the Star Wars prop exhibits there back in 1999 was the most popular attraction in Smithsonian history...

    Don't forget the toys for girls too..We love airplanes, etc, especially Jetfire!

    Of course, a whole bunch of people could get together and take a bus and avoid parking fees, or even take a taxi if they could split that fee as well.
    Either way, I believe it would be worth the trip and even the $15!!:p
