This is a wonderful educational stuff for a family with children. There are four floors of activities. We spent the whole day climbing and playing and learning, which can be a rarity for small children.

Unfortunately after being at the magic house for about three minutes. The window to the dinosaur train fell in and landed on my son's face. Definitely going to have a black eye and brushed cheekbone.

My 9 year old loved the exhibit that was a mystery. You had to solve clues to figure out a crime. They also loved sitting in the Oval Office.
