This is a fabulous children's museum. There's a section for younger children (5 and under if I remember) and multiple areas for all ages. My kids especially like "Under My Feet & Over My Head," where they dress up like animals and crawl through tunnels made to look like a burrow. There's a playground next to the museum which is great for a picnic afterwards. I always tried to get there early to make sure I could get free parking.

This children's museum is undergoing a huge expansion and will be much larger in 2015 or maybe 2016. This museum holds cherished memories for us. My older kids loved this a few years ago: dressing up as ants and insects and climbing in the anthill, dressing up as a firefighter and driving the real fire truck, the bubble room is amazing and slippery, the art room with paints, the dress up and dance room...My 4 year old now loves all of those things plus the ball room where plastic balls are shot through mechanisms powered by kids and mazes take the balls all over the room, the veterinary room where we take take of sick stuffed animals. We also enjoy the outside sand play area with a pirate ship and rock structures (when not crowded or too hot). I recommend getting there at opening time and call first to make sure it isn't a heavy school field trip day. Pack a lunch or eat in the cafe - wrapped sandwiches, organic stuff, healthy stuff. Make sure you park for free (entrance next to the aquarium) - just tell the guard you are going to the museum. Most of the time it is free to park. Hand stamp to get back in same day! Worth a membership if you are local and have toddlers.

Fun and educational, without the appearance of learning for the kids. This us a realatively large childrens museum. Good activities for a wide range of children.

Great field trip for my 10 year old. Lots of hands on activities and were able to spend the entire day there from 9am until 4pm with a quick lunch in the cafeteria. We ended up purchasing a membership so we can go back to see new exhibits as well. My daughter really enjoyed it.
