Da Vinci Science Center is a great place for young children. We took our grandchildren and they were facinated by the displays and especially the hands-on atmosphere where they could actually touch and play with the displays.

A little expensive for what they have to offer. We took my 3 year old who likes science and there was not a lot for her there but she did have a good time. It is easy to do in just a couple of hours.
