This is a fun place to go with young children. The museum is a doable size for an afternoon. I take my grandchildren whenever they are in town and they love going. The water room is a favorite of theirs.

Without a doubt, the kids will have a blast here. Lots of interactive things for them to do. For adults, you might want to bring some ear plugs as it can get rather loud, especially if they are busy.
