I took my two grandchildren, ages 15 months and 3 years. I had never even been into downtown Columbus, but the trip went well. There is a special floor for the little ones that has tons of very creative play areas. Their favorite was the water area, so take a change of clothes. There were lots of hands-on scientific exhibits for older children as well. The cafeteria was a little pricey, but the food was good. I loved the "Progress" exhibit, which showed life in an American town through the ages. There is definitely something for everyone!
