This big, nonprofit activity center and museum is especially popular with families. Interactive exhibits on age, hearing, kinetics, and video production, among other subjects, are all educational. Kids can explore an arts-and-crafts yurt, an audio production room, kinetic sculptures, a library, Internet stations, and more. Sports activities include indoor pitching cages and games, as well as an outdoor playground. Kids and adults can also take classes on music, theater, digital film, and poetry. There are free programs for preteens and teenagers on Friday nights from 6 to 11 (hint to Mom and Dad, who might want to enjoy dinner alone on this romantic island).
