Loads of Educational Fun!Flag review
I went to Great Explorations with several moms and kids from my local Moms' Group. It was really nice and had tons of fun, developmentally appropriate and interactive exhibits for the little ones. This included a preschool area with a cow that they could "milk," a treehouse, grocery store, cafeteria, doctor's office, etc. The only thing I didn't like was the downstairs was really open but with lots of places for little ones to hide, so it was easy to lost track of the kids if you weren't watching them like a hawk. This museum would be a great pick for families with children from toddler through upper elementary.
