Your kids will love this place. There is so much for them to do...when you first arrive, you will have the choice of paying $5 a person (except 2 and under) or buying a membership. They have many different levels of membership, but they are all great deals, especially if you plan on going often. (depending on what membership you get, you can add 8-16 people to it!) We have it, so whenever we feel like going, we cruise over there. (they close early on Mondays). There are so many hands-on exhibits there! They can dig for dinosaur bones, pretend they are putting gas in a car, play in a pretend grocery store, "ride" on a real bus, take a spin on the merry go round, watch model trains go round and round a track, enter a full room of "stuffed" animals (a taxidermy room) where they can touch once live animals, dress up and act on a stage and more! My son loves the room that is geared towards preschoolers...they have lots of toys for younger kids. There is also a section that has a changing exhibit....I think it changes twice a year. You can also visit a craft room and make different crafts or their gift shop...with inexpensive little toys. The employees are nice, but thats about it. They also have a real train that you can go on and explore, but only during certain hours.
