We recently visited the Santa Fe Children's Museum with our 5-year-old son. It's not the flashiest place, but it has a lot of low-tech charm. Our son had a great time with the dominoes, magnets, bubbles, wind tube and ball "rollercoasters." The outside area is...More

We took our grandchild there and watched, and even played with her, as she went from one learning activity to another. So many learning activities and she thought she was playing. We enjoyed the water yroughs and sand pendulum the most.
