    The new Tots Trails is AMAZING. Perfect for little ones. Nice and quiet. Need to find a way to keep the older kids out though.

    The level of drying provided by the "body dryer" does not equal the level of wet kids get in "plumber's park" but so worth it!

    During the summer, its packed with campers. Come after 3 and the crowds thin out. By 4 you have most of the museum to yourself!

    You can sort vegetables at the roadside market. It's about as exciting as you'd expect.

    Great place! I took my 21 month old for the first time, the water part on the 4th floor was a huge hit, as was the Toddler Trail - though this said for ages 0-3 but was more for ages 6-18 months.
