    The Titanic Museum offers guests the opportunity to explore the hallways, visit the staterooms, and experience what life may have been like on this tragic voyage. While this is an emotional adventure for some adults, it is definitely also child friendly.

    The Hollywood Wax Museum is a fantastically fun time, as guests take photos with their favorite celebrities... In wax form. Also don't miss the 5D ride, miniature golf, or maze of mirrors. While some may feel that the price is a bit high for a wax museum, others might argue that it's hard to put a price on the chance to snuggle up to George Clooney!
