There are many interactive rooms for the kids to explore. I took a 6 and 7 year old. You may have to wait to get into the play whole food store but once in it is a good experience for them

If you have kids between 2 1/2 or three and 10 they will love this place. The $12 entrance fee isn't too much given the large number of hands-on areas within the museum. Be prepared to watch the kids hang out at the individual exhibits...More
