Planning Your Visit
Prepare for a Memorable Experience
Most of the facilities listed here present visitors with a wealth of information -- much more than can be easily assimilated in one visit. Make the most of your visit by learning what you can in advance, and planning your visit accordingly. We have provided their website addresses to assist you. Additionally, on the detail page of each facility you can browse the facility's website without leaving this website.
Check Days & Hours In Advance
The days and hours of operation of these facilities are subject to change. Avoid unpleasant surprises by checking their website for current schedules before your visit!
What About Meals?
While many of the facilities have full-service cafes, many have none, and some have limited options that might not meet your dietary needs. Again, check their websites for information.
Make It Fun!
Many facilities have special exhibits or events such as family fun nights, costume days, and the like. Time your visit to take advantage of them! Check the facilities websites for more information.
Visit With Other Families
The best advice many people give us is to go with other families. For many, that seems to be fun for both adults and kids, and leads to many memorable experiences. Some facilities require minimum numbers for tours.
