There are so many interactive exhibits that children never tire of the activities available. Plenty of down time as well with coloring and a water park playground to just chill. Good food court choices as well.

The museum is very much for younger children. I had my 2 yr old, 5 yr old, 11 yr old and 9 yr old grandchildren with me. It really was directed to the two youngest grandchildren. The older two tried to have a good time...More

They offer a secret spy thing for the kids. We paid for one and all three shared it. It was great and kept them entertained for hours. The laser room at the end was the best so persevere, it's worth it. Cool other interactive exhibits....More

Hey, Suzy! The Museum recommends arriving early or arriving late during the day. That also depends on the season; during the school year, crowd comfort is at it's best.

Absolutely! There will be a few things he/she can't do, but as opposed to the things your toddler will be able to do- it's worth it. I've been taking my child since he was a little over 1. Great place!
