We had a few favorite areas. There was a drum room with various things to bang on, a giant water station with a bubble play area, places to build with things like bloc...

Great place to spend a rainy day (although it tends to be less crowded on nicer days). I wish they wouldn't charge admission for adults since it isn't really for us...lots for kids to do, though. We had a membershi...

Took the kids here for a few hours yesterday.  The hands on exhibits are amazing.  My 2 and 3-year-old were so entertained by everything.  They were a bit overwhelmed at first.  The chi...
