Fodor's Review

This strikingly modern building, designed by world-renowned architect César Pelli, houses 40,000 square feet of exhibit space under a wavelike roof that appears to float over the structure. Dive into a black hole and examine the moon's craters in the Space Exploration exhibit, race mini-sailboats and magnetic trains at Forces in Motion, and discover your hidden athletic talents in the Sports Lab. Kid Space is perfect for the three- to six-year-old crowd. Complete your

visit by taking in a movie in the 3-D digital theater. The café emphasizes locally sourced cuisine.
