What better way to learn about the world than through touch? This children’s museum offers more than 50 hands-on exhibits for kids to explore. The “Let’s Get Physical” section allows little ones to climb a rock wall, make their way through a giant maze by climbing over and under colorful ropes, lift themselves up with pulleys, and follow light and sound patterns. Kids learn about physics by creating their own roller coaster with balls, tubes and platforms; constructing three-dimensional buildings; and tying basic sailing knots. In the “Today I Want to Be” area, they step into the shoes of a veterinarian, a grocer, a cop on a motorcycle and into grandma’s attic. Even more discoveries await in exhibits like Hidden Treasures, the art world, Imagination Creation and the unique “Experience the World of One Who is Physically Challenged.”
