One of the best activities to do with younger children (aged say 5-11) - they love the interactive displays and learn while playing - great for a rainy miserable day.

Took my 3 kids - ages 1 to 4, and they loved it. Some things were beyond them but still plenty to see, play and do there - very reasonable entrance fees too. The hot air ballon and building section were the favorites.
