Visited Tuesday night (free 3-8 p.m.) with sons 13 and 9 and we really enjoyed our stay. We arrived at 6:30 p.m. and got front row parking in the garage as many people were leaving (parking free). We paid the $5 each to do the dino exhibit and although my sons were probably on the older side, I think they still enjoyed making the dinosaurs move with the iPads. For the parents, it is hilarious to see a few of the toddlers terrified of the dinosaurs (and you are so happy your own kids are beyond that stage).
Our next stop was the Tree House and my boys LOVED this place. It was very hands on– shooting the tennis ball in the air, doing a news cast, playing the pipes, smelling the herbs, watching the ducks, pressing a penny, etc. We spent the rest of our time in here. Pay attention to the signs and make sure you climb up every stairwell and hit every floor. It would be easy to miss something.
Afterwards we walked the grounds and enjoyed seeing the river and the flowers (everything still dead where we live). I would definitely recommend this museum as a stop with kids.
