My kids, ages 5-13, love visiting Exploration Works at least once a month. My youngest (5) had her most recent birthday there and she and her friends had a scientist at the party that helped them do their own expirement. It was a great hands on experience that they all enjoyed!
Great interactive science museum for younger children. Lots of activities. After playing here stop by next door at the Great Northern Carousel to ride on the carousel and enjoy some ice cream.
