Took 10 yr. Old granddaughter & she had a ball! Great for high-energy kid like her. We went to Natural history, Duke Energy Children's & Omnimax movie & she enjoyed all 3, but definitely Children's was favorite. I appreciated benches & chance to sit down while she explored. The ball zone was fun, Kroger grocery & fuel station, water zone, & treehouse/climbing area all kept her entertained & after such activity, she slept on 3 hr. ride home! What a beautiful venue the old railroad station is, also!!

There was the science museum and when we were there they had a Dinosaur exhibit. The price was okay.

This is a fabulous museum! Whether you are spending the day, or just looking to kill a few hours, the variety and selection of the various exhibit halls is amazing. And the architecture of the building alone is stunning. I have seen a number of travelling exhibits here as well, and they are always presented with the same care and attention that the museum gives to the permanent collection.

Excellent Photos from the outside. My wife and I went by the Museum. The parking is $7.00. We decided not to go visit the Museum and pay the additional fees. There is free 15 minute parking up front. The water fountain area and flowers is immaculate as well as taking pictures of the outside building. The inside is interesting also with an old organ, beautiful inside, gift shop, penny machine and decent bathroom to use. It is worth the stop even for 15 minutes if you are in town. If you do park at the lot and visit the museum, you can take the trolley to the front doors.

I read that this is the home if one of the top 10 children's museums in the country and I can see why. We took our 6 year old daughter who had an amazing time. She loved the large water table area. The section called The Woods was by far her her favorite part. They had what looked like a real forest for kids to play. They had ladders and stairs for kids to get into the tree canopy and play. A tree fort and tree house where kids could play. They could even go down a tree slide. We highly recommend. We also checked out the dinosaur special exhibit which I would recommend for older children. At 6 years old our daughter wasn't that into it.
