This museum is targeted primarily at children, but it has many interesting interactive exhibits that can capture persons of any age, especially while watching the reactions of the kids. A great treat for a child's special day.

My four year old daughter had a great time. She had plenty of things to explore and thoroughly enjoyed herself. Only downfall is that we went later in the afternoon on a Saturday and it was a little messy in certain areas.

Parking was a little difficult to find due to parking garage being full. Luckily the museum next door had a excellent parking lot w/many vacant spots. The attraction and activities were worth the visit. Although this place was really crowded I will definitely revisit on...More
