    If you have a membership, think about stopping in @4pm on a summer afternoon. We do this often in June-August---it's the perfect amount of time to see it all, grab an ice cream and head home.

    Great place to take your 4-6,7 year old to have a fun time. Also a parking ramp is just across the street from MCM which is great!

    Make sure your child is wearing clothes that can get messy! Also, bring an extra pair in case they get wet. :)

    Teach your kids about nature and let them plant flowers, collect chicken eggs, play in tree houses, and play on local natural materials.

    Great museum, but the construction around it and crowd is a deterrent.

    Check out the rooftop garden -- when we visited, there were little baby chicks walking around that kids could feed and pet.
