We have taken our 19 month old here twice, she has a ball. I was concerned our first trip thinking she may not enjoy herself, but many of the exhibits seems to be geared toward younger children. She enjoys the fish, arch and the bubbles the most. I think if we were permanent residents to the area she may in time get bored with the museum since it doesn't seem to change often - if ever, I've not seen anything stating it changes exhibits. We purchased the summer pass which has already saved us money on just two trips. We have plans to take an older child, 9, with us later this month. I think she will have fun her first trip since it will all be new, but think she may become bored with it after 2 trips. I'd think children under the age of 10 would enjoy their first trip, but anyone over the age of 5/6 may become bored with it after a few trips. Parking is limited to the street or other public parking in the area. Also, only the first floor is accessible to the handicapped. Wheelchairs and those strolling babies will not be able to go downstairs - unless you take the stairs - there are no elevators. THE ONLY BATHROOMS ARE DOWNSTAIRS! We found the museum entertaining for our young child, she loves running around and playing with the items in the museum, however I don't think it's a place for older children. I say give it a go, some children enjoy the science of things longer than others so your older children may fully enjoy themselves, it's worth a stop in. Note our trips have all been under two hours, though I'm sure our daughter would have stayed longer as she likes running around the place, it's toddler friendly in that you don't have to worry about them getting into things they should not, all is there to be played with. Overall we find it entertaining for our young child and a lot better than sitting inside at home or sweating outside; she can run and play and we all enjoy that part of it.
