We went with a 5 yr old, a 6 yr old, and a 9 yr old. They all had a great time (although the 5 year old lost interest before the others.) It's a nice mix of hands-on opportunities and educational displays. Since it's a percussion experience, it's loud, and unfortunately you can hear all the other exhibit areas throughout the facility. It makes it a little hard for a child to really experience the sounds they are creating when it's mixing with everything else that others in the museum are doing. I don't know that there's much to be done about that without having really elaborate soundproof exhibit rooms. Still, the kids had fun and made lots of good music! One poor design factor is that the 'don't touch' exhibits are delineated either by being roped off, or being up on "platforms." For a young child, being up on a low platform does not translate to 'hands off'. Ropes they understand, but exhibits on platforms right next to the drums they could play was really hard to understand. The exhibits on platforms looked just as inviting as the instruments on the floor in front of our next to them. That made for some real battles and resulting disappointment. All in all, though, a great exhibit. Glad we went!
