"Buy what you have no need of and you'll soon sell what you need."--Ben Franklin, "Poor Richard's Almanac"
A bargain after 4pm, when admission drops to $4 each ($7 at other times), the Children's Museum is fun. Kids can play in a pretend restaurant, shop in a pretend store, explore interactive holograms, climb on interactive sculptures, and do a wide variety of other activities. The museum features a huge art room and offers occasional art workshops. Plays are also put on here (admission for these is about $8, but you do not have to also pay museum admission). It's best for children 7 and under.
