About these ratings

Like the nearby Tech Museum, the Children's Discovery Museum offers hands-on experiences for kids as well as some interesting displays for adults. Recent travelers seem to have several favorite exhibits, but the WaterWays -- a large network of water-filled tubes through which colorful balls travel -- stands out above the rest. Parents like the sections of the museum that are designed for specific ages like The Wonder Cabinet, which caters to children age four and younger. One visitor attests to Yelp.com: "This is a great place to take your child to let them interact with other kids and play with lots of unique things." And although there is a food court (which some say is a bit expensive), you're also permitted to bring your own lunch or snacks.

Located in downtown, the Children's Discovery Museum welcomes visitors from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and opens late at noon on Sunday. Admission costs $12 for both kids and adults. For more information, check out the museum's website.
