We visited the museum with our 3year old and it was an excellent place to visit. There are loads of touchy feely things for the kids including touch pools at the aquarium, bones at the reptiles, butterflies in the tropical dome and reactive lights with moving bugs under your feet! It's a really got everything under one roof. We saw penguins being fed and then went under water to see sea life and then were reading about the Galapagos turtles and on to a tropical rain forest enclosed in a dome. There is also an earthquake simulator which looked great but we didn't get time to go. There is also a small kiddies room we didn't get a chance to visit where they have specific activities for very young kids. You need at least 3-4 hours to make it worth your while paying the entrance fee and to give yourself enough time to see everything.
