Numerous of permanent interactive displays and a temporary interactive displays, great for kids from 2 to 7ish. I just wish that parent would not let their kids run over the little kids. There is a separate room for kids under 3, but not really monitored so often older kids are running around in there too.

This museum is great for kids, which is what it is geared to. If you come in wintertime, the "snow land" exhibit is popular and fun. It features fake snowflakes, a carpet hockey rink, and more.

I highly recommend a visit to this museum if you are traveling in the Columbia area with children. I am the parent of a 7 year old boy and a 4 year old girl and both children were captivated! It was thrilling to see them so involved in the exhibits that they don't realize how much they are learning! Both kids agreed climbing through Eddie and discovering his body's internal workings was their favorite part! You will not be disappointed!
