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 4 and younger and encourages exploration in a safe and stimulating setting (like an art studio). 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. Tuesday through Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Admission costs $13 for both kids and adults. For more information, check out the museum's website.
