I love how the architecture and flow of the tour lets you see fishes from all angles. Plan not to be able to use a stroller. A bit pricer. Must stay a long time to see it all

The Museum is a great place for toddlers! They can touch and play with everything. The children can dress up and have fun at the "mini life"area. They can be fire fighters, cook at the pizza place, buy at the grocery store and so on!...More
