Children's Museum Review

A life-size walk-through replica of a 60-foot sperm whale greets patrons at this museum. Located in West Hartford, the museum has a wildlife sanctuary and real-life images beamed in from NASA, plus an exhibit on rocks and fossils that will make a geologist out of your little one.
