Kids will love 'Grandma's Attic.' This is a hands on exhibit for children. where they can try on vintage clothes, play with historic games and toys or read old books and magazines. There is also a market and a 1940s kitchen, where children can pretend that they're running an old-fashioned corner store and take their purchases to the kitchen to prepare their meal. Plan to spend quite a while here as it was hard to drag my little ones away. Grandma's Attic is designed for children 12 and younger.
Even if you aren't planning on buying anything, make sure you stop by and visit the nine-foot-tall statue of George Washington greeting all the visitor to the gift shop.
