Exhibits always changing. An excellent opportunity for adults and children! Ramp access to each floor accommodates those with strollers and wheel chairs.

Went with my 12 & 14 year olds, who have almost (but not quite) aged out of the children's museum genre. This one is a gem, though, and believe me, we've been to about a billion of them. Everybody learned a lot. Go early before...More

We stayed at the Hampton Inn at Keystone crossing. It was very new and clean, lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. And an indoor pool. Jason’s Deli is close, a good place to eat IMO.
