This museum is super interactive and great for learning. We didn’t go with kids but the kids around us seamed to be having a lot of fun!

This museum is an amazing place to spend time with your family and friends. The attractions here are great for kids and adults young and old. Especially the 7D theater. Our family loved this museum and we will definitely be coming back for another visit.

Just three might be a little young, but there are plenty of hands on things to do that even very young children can enjoy. Our four year old grandsons had a blast. While there were some activities they couldn't participate... More
