This is a fun Museum for children and adults. I took my 18 year old nieces there during a rainy afternoon, and we all had fun. The little ones that we watched were just as enchanted.

Lots of fun, hands on exhibits that are great for kids and adults. From a tornado booth, to a giant lever, to musical instruments the list is long. Lots of good historical and natural resource displays as well. Nice cafeteria and coffee shop onsite.
