How can children NOT have fun when there is nobody telling them "don't touch". It's all hands-on. The price is reasonable and season tickets are available that allow entrance to other museums all over the country.

The museum is located on very attractive wooded grounds and has permanent and travelling exhibits. Most of the exhibits are interactive and let the kids play while they learn. My favorite is a very large Van De Graff generator where they can experience their hair standing on end from the intense static electricity.
