Fodor's Review

Kids can't wait to get their hands on the wonderful interactive exhibits at this lively museum–aquarium combo that explores technology, physics, weather, and other science topics. Check out the stingrays and other marine life in the aquariums, touch tanks, and the USS Mohawk artificial reef tank featured on Animal Planet’s “Tanked!” Feed the fish, turtles, and swans in the outdoor lagoon; visit a tarantula, python, hissing cockroach, juvenile alligator, and other live critters in the Animal Lab; dig for dinosaur bones; watch a 3-D movie in the theater; take part in a hands-on Animal Encounter demonstration, and touch a cloud. Other highlights include the Mini Museum early childhood area, Backyard Nature, aquaponics area, Nano Lab, and Idea Lab engineering design center, as well as Build-Your-Own-Coaster and Science of Motion. Look for history exhibits to be integrated in 2017, with underwater plane wrecks, a Columbian mammoth, and giant ground sloth, as well as a replica Cracker House.
