The newly remodeled kids room was very fun, interactive, and engaging. We went to a program about raptors that was interesting and educational and fun for the kids. Definitely worth the stop if you're in the area, especially if you stop by on the free day (Wednesday or Thursday? I can't remember)
The changing exhibit is always well loved and chosen. The workers are inviting and knowledgeable. And the curiosity center is perfect for the kids!
