This is a very kid-friendly, hands on museum. It is set up nicely and you even get a chance to find the sasquash. The video game/simulator should have updated graphics, however.

This is mostly a well-done discovery center for elementary aged children. I went as an adult and spent about an hour, learned a few things.

Whole museum is mostly for children with a cool interactive logging video game and other hands-on experiences. As adults, we most enjoyed the forests of the world exhibits upstairs. Interesting 4-part video experience simulating travel around the world. Numerous petrified tree exhibits.

No. It is in a whole complex with the zoo and Children's center. There is a subway station in the park though, so if you stay near a station you can get off at the Washington Park stop.
