Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert

Paint a real VW Bug!

Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert Review

With instructive hands-on exhibits, this museum contains a miniature rock-climbing area, a magnetic sculpture wall, make-it-and-take-it-apart projects, a rope maze, and an area for toddlers. Kids can paint a VW Bug, work as chefs in the museum's pizza parlor, and build pies out of arts and crafts supplies. There's also a racetrack for which kids can assemble their own cars.
