My girl scout troop of 10 year old's took a day trip to the museum. They loved it. The first floor has a small aquarium, rainforest, a touch tank, hands on with microscopes etc. The second floor is where we spent the most time, as that's where all the hands on activities are -- Kapla blocks, building a fort, building/architecture, lots of physics experiences (bed of nails, air flow, levers, pulley's, gears, air carrying items, plus making creations out of foil, making shoes out of duct tape and supplies, air chair, etc. ) We spent about 5 hours at the museum.
The gift shop was great, with a wide variety of prices, so the kids could find things $5 and under (of course there is plenty that costs more). Very nice staff too - at the gift shop, at the museum gate, etc. Excellent museum!
