This museum is WONDERFUL! It provides a great hands-on learning environment and family learning is highly encouraged throughout the museum, so you can have fun playing with your kids while they learn. Children are encouraged to learn through play and experimentation. The have many terrific galleries, each of which engages the child's mind. Finally, the staff people, which are on the floor in nearly every exhibit, are great sources of information and exceedingly helpful.
