We always bring our daughter here when we visit Durham, it's a very unique combination of a children's science museum plus a small zoo. I'm not sure where else you can take kids where there's a petting zoo and butterfly and insect pavilion, a zoo with bears, wolves, and lemurs, an outdoor play area, and a full scale hands-on indoor science museum. It's also interesting enough to keep the adults happy and we usually spend at least 2-3 hours when we visit. If you're a pass member of certain other museums, admission here is free. Definitely worth a visit.
