Fodor's Review

In this five-story exploratorium, children ages one to seven are invited to paint their own masterpieces, float boats down a "stream" (weather permitting), rescue animals with Dora and Diego (in an exhibition created in collaboration with Nickelodeon), and walk through giant interactive organs to explore the connections between food, sleep, and play. Special exhibits focus on the works of prominent artists, like the recent Red Grooms' New York City, and promote

physical fitness, like You Make the Call: Learn to be an NFL Official. Seasonal programs include a Grinch Holiday workshop. Art workshops, science programs, and storytelling sessions are held daily. Admission is free 5–8 pm on the first Friday of every month.
