Fodor's Review

Push buttons and pedals to your heart's content to make the exhibits in the Museum of Mechanical Art and Design come alive. Witty, beautiful, and intricate automata and examples of kinetic art will clank, whirr, and rattle away. Marbles and Ping-Pong balls thread and bounce through looping runs, a typewriter play tunes on glasses and bottles, and two trains chuff around high up on the walls. Kids will love constructing their own marble run and grown-ups will marvel at the Kitchenator display. There's also a shop full of weird and wonderful things to buy.
