Enjoy a day with the family at this lively, hands-on museum where children discover that learning and fun go together. Kids pull, push, poke and take apart as they make their way through a series of interactive exhibits.

This was a fun museum for our 5 year old granddaughter. Our 10 year old grandson got bored early into the visit, although, he did like the panning feature and the train driving simulation. I would recommend this museum for younger children.

Great place for indoor activity (escape from heat or out of cold). Better for younger kids - 8 and under.
