Lots to see and do

This is a fun little museum! Your child will like the low-key atmosphere and the chance to try some experiments and learn a bit about science.

Explorit has a variety of hands-on indoor and outdoor science activities that children can explore and learn new things about the world around them. Exhibits are rotated periodically and include a rock/mineral collection, live animals with which children can interact, and physical science experiments. Explorit hosts traveling programs and intramural camps for children.

This was a fun spot to visit but very much for young families. The title of the exhibit online was about Art and Science so I thought I'd give it a try. Went there with my 19 yr. old daughter.

It's the sort of place where you and your kids will pick up ideas for things you can start - or continue - at home. It's small but there's lots to do if you are into getting engaged with sciencey stuff. It's in a park setting... More
