The kids especially liked the bubble you can stand in, the unique way the kids can get upstairs, the tornado exhibit and the backyard playground right on the river - it was very pretty, too!

The orchids were stunning, and the kids loved the butterflies and cocoons.

Burpee Museum of Natural History

The Discovery Museum next door has more stuff to keep young children engaged and is worth a visit as well but if your kids are of an age where they want to delve a bit deeper and especially if they like dinosaurs...
A tunnel walk takes you to the other fantastic place for children of all ages- the Discovery Center.

My children appreciated our recent history when our freedom was earned, especially when they saw troops saluting real WWII veterans.
Here's a great place to take the family, go as a couple or even go alone for an interesting, informative and fascinating museum and grounds.
