My two young kids and I spent the afternoon here for the Summer Of Discoveries "Oceans" program. My son is 3 1/2 and had an amazing time learning and exploring the various activities. He even dissected a squid, and has been talking about what he learned all day! My 1 1/2 year old even enjoyed checking out the different exhibits and activities. This is exactly the type of facility and learning environment that I love for my kids and I can't wait to check out the other themes of the summer program over the next few weeks!
