Children must be accompanied by an adult, and no adults are admitted without accompanying children.
Families love the indoor areas and the wonderful outdoor environment with opportunities for kids to climb a hill, roll in the grass, splash in a little “river,” build a log fort, ride a safe little zipline and more beckon in warm or sunny weather. Exhibits are divided to four themes encouraging children to Explore, Investigate, Imagine and Create and thereby expand their world.
The museum undertook a $16.1 million expansion in 2015, doubling the exhibit space and adding such features as Altitude, The Art Studio, Energy, Joy Park, The Teaching Kitchen and Water.
