We were lucky that found street parking right out front, not sure do they have park lots. It was fun for the kids, it has 3-4 levels. We spent most day there, even the teens has fun at this place too.

This isn't a museum, it's a temporary play area while the actual museum is being remodeled. It's about $8 per person if you're not a member. Don't waste your money. I guess it makes sense to come if you're a member, but even then it's...More

We try to make it to the museum every year. There is something for all ages and it seems to be ever changing. Everything is hands on and interactive so the kids get to participate. My kids request it anytime we pass through the cities.
