An interactive learning experience for the whole family! The Children's Discovery Museum has a giant bubble making exhibit, a train station complete with tickets & costumes, and a "diner" with play food, menus, etc. While this museum is geared for the younger set, the Science Discovery Museum has plenty for everyone to do and see. You can make a cloud, complete electrical circuits, build something with real tools - and so much more. EVERYTHING in these museums is hands-on - great for the kinesthetic learner!
