Nice kids museum. It was very hands on and lots of activies to do from normal wind tunnels, banking, woodworking tools, large versions of board games. The layout is very open and never felt crowded even with all the school field trips.

Marbles is a must if you are in Raleigh with children ( under the age of 10). There is so much for them to do and explore. Cost is inexpensive and the kiddos won't want to leave.
