Three floors of great activities and things to explore for children. The gift shop has lots of great items and being downtown means you can make a "day" of it with lunch out!

Wasn't sure what to expect, but it's much bigger than you might expect. Great price and very interesting exhibits.

This is a hands on fun place for kids and adults both. One can spend a whole day here. There is a lunch room where one can eat and relax between enjoying all the exhibits.
