Fodor's Review

With nearly 473,000 square feet of fun-filled interactive exhibits, there's no doubt this attraction is one of the best children's museums in the country. Adults gawk with wide-eyed wonder at the Dale Chihuly "Fireworks of Glass" sculpture that dangles down through the five-story atrium, while kids go gaga over pretty much everything else. Highlights include "Dinosphere," where visitors get a look at Baby Louie, who gained fame on the cover of National Geographic as the

only known articulated dinosaur embryo. "ScienceWorks" gets kids thinking about nature, buildings and the efforts that connect them together; plus, it features a popular climbing wall. The whimsical fifth-level antique carousel runs all day long and rides are only $1 for nonmembers. Museum parking is free.
