San Luis Obispo Children's Museum

San Luis Obispo Children's Museum Review

Activities at this delightful facility geared to kids under age eight include an "imagination-powered" elevator that transports visitors to a series of underground caverns. Elsewhere, simulated lava and steam sputter from an active volcano. Kids can pick rubber fruit at a farmers' market and race in a fire engine to fight a fire.
