  • This place has been a staple in my list of things to do every time I visit my hometown, Hot Springs. I loved coming here as a kid and still love coming here as an adult. I appreciate that there is always something around that I saw as a kid, and always something around that is new. If you want a fun learning experience for your kids or just for you, visit this museum.
  • This science museum is MUCH better than the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh and slightly better than the Children's Museum of Indianapolis. The grounds are beautiful, the museum is clean and neat and have lots of fun interactive areas (for parents and adults). The ropes area was really cool. Hidden gem near Hot Springs!
