We visited the museum on a Thursday afternoon, which filled three hours for two elementary school age boys and a toddler. There are a lot of hands-on activities and kid-sized, grown-up activities (miniature grocery store, restaurant and kitchen, etc) so they can replicate the daily activities of adults, but at their own level. There are many craft-type activities from building cars for a race track to rockets for launching. There are quite a few energy-expenders, such as a multi-story climbing gym, rock wall, virtual snowboarding and so much more. Upstairs they have the "Tot Spot" which is for kids under 39 months.
If you, like me, are worried about germs when large groups of kids congregate for shared hands-on (germs-on!) activities, they do a good job of keeping things clean here. Up in the Tot Spot, they very friendly workers come around and swap toys every so often with clean toys.
They also have a fun water activity center outside. This isn't for swimming, but for building boats, assembling pipes with flowing water and many other educational ways to get soaked, if you wish.
If possible, park in the parking lot beside the entrance which was $5 for all day parking, rather than the museum parking deck, which costs a few dollars more.
Admission is $8 per person over 1 year of age, even for adults, which is the only thing I can really gripe about here. The 5 adults in our group cost $40, even though we could only watch the kids play. But still, it is a good experience for the kids and we enjoyed ourselves.
