Great Explorations Children

A children's museum is one of the few places in the world kids never hear that don't-touch warning. Great Explorations invites youngsters to crawl, climb, touch, smack and otherwise mess around with everything in sight. A Touch Tunnel is a sight deprivation maze through more than 100 feet of twisting, turning blackness. Explore Galore plays with the brains of preschoolers. Kids measure their strength and flexibility in the Bod Shop and investigate the zap of electricity at the Power Plant.

The museum's permanent exhibit space is chock full of interactive displays that allow kids to role-play and step into grown-up worlds. They can shop for nutritious food in a child-sized market, experience the life as a firefighter, learn what it takes to be a veterinarian in a kid-oriented animal hospital, and more. Kids can also play with hands-on exhibits that teach scientific and other educational lessons.
