  • Maggie M.

    Loved the mummies exhibit here! Museum features occasional traveling treasures and is worth the drive from other spots in the DMV.

    Interactive kids and young adult science center. Top floor exhibit changes throughout the year.

    The question really should be, what isn't good here. AAA rates it a gem and it's deserved. We have a membership, and it's paid off itself in spades. Bubble Day was highly successful.

    You can bring guests on your family membership if you have extra spots. Caregiver/Babysitter can take the kids even if primary member isn't going- you just have to send a note!

    Stare at the night sky at the Davis Planetarium, or check out the Imax Theater with its five-story screen. The Center also has kid-friendly interactive exhibits. Read more:

    If you prefer to park on the street: 2hr pkg & 4hr nearby. Get 4hr ticket @ the machine directly across the street from the group entrance, then drive over to the 2hr area where there's more space.

    The Laser Pop planetarium show involves no science. Just a laser light show.
