    Did you know? You can observe the rotation of the Earth by paying a visit to the museum’s Foucault Pendulum – a 235-pound, 17-inch brass ball that demonstrates the Earth’s counter-clockwise movement. Read more

    If you have young kids, I highly recommend buying a yearly pass for the Zoo, the Science Center and Living History Farms. Excellent value.

    Be sure to hit up the IMAX. By far, the best place to watch a movie in the Des Moines Metro.

    They always have Groupon deals. Check there first before paying full price.

    The Cafe here has the worst food. I would eat before or after a visit here.
