For hands-on, educational fun, this museum delivers. Though the majority of the exhibits are geared for elementary school-aged kids on up, there’s a great zone for toddlers and preschoolers, where they can check out critters and even play computer games. The best part is that the museum is free, though your kids might want to partake of some of the fee-based extras, like a motion-based simulator and a climbing wall.
