We went to Exploirt with friends. Its fun for little children. There is a nice lawn area as well. Do check in advance what hours the museum is open on their web site.

I'm a native Davisite and I grew up visiting the Explorit Science Center. This is a great place to learn and experience science hands-on. The exhibits rotate and they oftentimes have live animals that kids can handle. All around, this is a worthwhile afternoon outing.

A few other moms and I took our Kindergarteners there. They had fun but the place is smaller than expected and we didn't stay very long. Definitely educational and it won't take up your whole day.
