    Great for kids. Membership really worth it, especially for kids 3-6. Glad they're expanding as some of the exhibits are starting to show their age. Always something new for the kids to see and learn.

    They have reciprocal relationships with other museums across the country. Our children's museum membership (WI) got us in for free! :-)

    Friday afternoons are a great time to go if your kids aren't fans of big crowds.

    Buy the membership! Not only do members save money in café and gift shop, but they park for free and get to preview some of the areas before they open to the public. There is so much fun to be had!

    Come after 1pm during the school year---it's a lot less crowded and you will still have plenty of time to explore!

    The door to the just mice size has a child lock on it. Watching adults fail at it is a never ending source of amusement. Worth the membership all by itself!
