Exhibit Highlights: Kidtropolis is a "city for kids, run by kids" where little ones will learn about the functions of government and the people responsible for keeping cities running smoothly. Get wet and wild with FlowWorks, a water play center that also explores the concept of hydropower, and take the tiniest visitors to the Tot*Spot, an exhibit specially designed for babies from birth to 35 months.
Insider Info: Every Thursday between 5 and 8 p.m. is Free Family Night!
Family-Friendly Amenities: The recent addition of a covered parking garage offers more than 100 spaces and three exits, so getting in and out of the museum is never a hassle. The Fresh Cafe offers nutritious, kid-friendly (and affordable) eats like veggie burgers, salads, and yogurt.
