NOAA's Earth System lab is a great place to bring kids. It's free and so many of the exhibits are interactive. It's also really interesting and informative. I hope all of you who go take things to heart regarding climate change and the environment.

I think I signed up a couple days ahead because I knew we were going to be in Boulder and really wanted to be on the tour. If you go to their tour sign-up page it shows you exactly how many slots are open for each week's tours. If the number of slots gets low I guess it depends on how much of a gambler you are on whether there will still be openings later. Because it is a government facility with tight security I presume they do some sort of quick background check on you in advance (e.g., no-fly list) so there may be a cut-off time, but I don't know what it is.
Note that to get on site you will need to present positive ID (some states' drivers licenses are NOT accepted), go through x-ray and metal detectors, and have the car searched.
