"Museum "

This is one of the best museums that i have ever been too! It really brings out the creativity and imagination of children s minds. It has different floors and a lot of inter activity for learning.Bring plenty of cash because the different and most exiting exhibits can cost you a pretty penny. Also do not pretend you can go through it in one day, have patience and absorb all you can and make plans for a latter trip.

"Fun with the Family"

The Children’s Discovery Museum encourages touch and exploration. A favorite is the Water Discovery exhibit, where kids can create huge bubbles and play with water. The train room with Brio trains helps kids enact fantasies of ticket selling and getting on a train to undiscovered places; the Discovery Ship, located in the attic of the Victorian house, is great fun for improvisations of walking the plank.
This museum and the Science Discovery Museum are a big hit with inquisitive, playful kids. Ongoing fun and educational activities on any given day could include butterfly making, face painting, visits from superheroes, and music performances. Check the schedule.

"Excellent for young children"

There are many different rooms to engage all types of learning and fun.  From ringing the train's bell to "cooking" in the diner to bringing in the lobster traps in the ocean room, kids are learning and laughing the entire time.  The entire building was updated recently, especially the water room, which is great!  Perfect for kids age 1-5 (babies can be entertained, too, but I would only bring with preschool-age children to keep mom/dad interested).
