Wonderful half day museum trip. Teaches all about electricity with a rather large assortment of hands-on activities-- more like a science museum dedicated to electricity. It is located in an old mansion-- very fun to roam around the upper levels. The Frankenstein exhibit was too scary for my kids but those older than 8-9 would probably love it too. On Saturdays they have Kids Hands-on stuff that has included building a robot of junk and designing circuits to light a bulb.
