This is a place that everyone will like...child or adult. You may also be able to catch a nice IMAX movie in the attached theater.

This is an excellent, compact, Science Museum. Easily done in a day, less, if desired. Large climbing section for kids about 24 mos thru 10 or 11 years?! The IMAX movie theater is great. Larger cities have larger museums, but this has a good mix of hands-on activities, along with just "look" items. Sesame Street area is great for the littlest ones! Located in Armory Square, there are sub shops to very nice dining style restaurants within steps of the museum! Pay to Park garage across the street - I think it was around $5 - $7. Have fun!

For your young science enthusiast this is a wonderful hands on experience that gives exposure to a variety of interests from modeling to serious research. Entry level science. For older kids this is boring.

My daughter and son-in-law were visiting, so we took the grandchildren to the museum. They are 3 and 5 years old. Some of the exhibits fascinated them, but many did not seem to be geared to young kids.
