This interactive museum is really a playground in disguise that will keep kids occupied for a good couple of hours. Along with changing exhibits, the museum offers an art shop with regularly scheduled projects, a mini grocery store, a chance to “build” a New Orleans–style home, and lots of activities exploring music, fitness, science, and life itself. If you belong to your local science museum, check for reciprocal entry privileges. Note: Children 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
