My young grandchildren cannot get enough of the Children's Museum. Be prepared to spend a day because there seems to be no end to the possibilities here.

Great environment. Especially good on free day. I believe Wednesday is that day that's free for all families.

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!
