Fodor's Review

Allow at least two hours for the aquariums, the three-story rain forest, and the IMAX Dome Theater. Lie on a bed of nails, conduct experiments in the interactive labs or get in touch with your inner innovator as you create shoes from garbage. Check the schedule for special exhibits.
