There are so many hands on science and learning experiences on every floor, I can't begin to describe them. A favorite was building a weather machine and putting it in a wind tunnel to see if could fly in a certain "zone". Little one loved...More

We went on the submarine ride. The submarine moves and has a screen that explains what's going on. There is also a couple of climbing things that are very nice.
