The museum is one of my grandchildrens' favorite place to visit. There's lots of fun hands on displays. They are learning & have a great time all at once.

This is an educational and interesting museum. There are lots of activities for children. The scavenger hunt is fun and educational for children. There is lots for children to do and lots of learning can take place.
