We went here with our 6 and 3 year old boys. The 6 year old really enjoyed the interpretive center. There were lots of pictures and items displayed in a hands on enviroment so the boys could touch and feel them. Our 6 year old is a strong reader and enjoyed reading the stories, excerpts and quotes. There was a light show exhibit he really enjoyed playing around with. The 3 year old was a bit too young for the exhibits but still enjoyed running around and being able to touch and examine the different exhibuts. As a parent of young children I really appreciated the hands on approach available in the interpretive center. As you continue on the self guided tour there are several staged rooms behind glass and a guft shop, then the huckleberry home. The boys were interested in the staged areas, but not nearly as much as the interpretive center. My oldest collects stretched coins and there was a stretched coin machine outside the interpretive center.
