is this a good spot to take my 4 year old, are there kid activities.
It is great for any age. They have as well special scavenger hunts for kids during the season.
There are some hands-on exhibits and a scavenger hunt. I think you could pick and choose what you read and find with your four year old and definitely keep him entertained for an hour or so.
Im not sure I would have taken my daughter at 4. While we were there I saw 2 younger kids, Im guessing 4 and 6 and the youngest seemed bored. My daughter is 9 and loved it, but its stuff she is learning about in school... There is a scavenger hunt on paper where it sends the kids looking for answers to questions but I don't know if its suited for a little one of 4.
