Fodor's 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. The museum recently updated its store, making this one of the best spots to pick up educational gifts.
