Museum is located in the first floor of the Moody Mansion. Lots of interactive things for young kids to do. Don't recommend for kids older then 10.

Best children's museum in the state! Small, but allows kids to use imagination in concrete, independent ways. Provides materials for performance play, tinkering, experimenting, science, reading, art - everything!
