Fodor's Review

With more than 90,000 square feet for climbing, exploring, painting, playing, building—oh, and learning, too—this museum is a full day of hands-on fun. Eddie, a 40-foot-tall statue of a boy that can be climbed on and in by children and adults, is the centerpiece. Each of nine galleries has a theme, such as Body Detectives, Wags & Whiskers, and Mission Imagination. Kids can shop in their own grocery store, act as firefighters in a full-size fire truck, and pretend

to be newscasters. The annual Beakers and Broomsticks Halloween party is a blast. On the second Tuesday evening of each month, admission is only $1.
