Jacob's Review:
   There is a Tornado there and it was real, but it wasn't big. But it was bigger than me - and you can try and grab it with your hand - but it might go away... That's one thing they had there. There is a pretend store where you can work - It looks real & there is pretend money and you can work the checkout counter to check out other kids - even if you don't know them. But don't worry because it isn't really food in the boxes.


Dad's Notes:
   A nicely done children museum, the exhibits change every so often - the kids are going to enjoy it! Visitors can find discount Museum parking available one block over on 3rd Street between Lavaca and Guadalupe. Parking changes with Downtown construction, so call or check web site for current info.

   When the museum prepares it's exhibits and programs, they do so with children ages 0-11yrs old in mind so this really is a place designed and developed for the minds of children and they do a wonderful job. Children love to come here and so do their parents. They have theme days- on select Saturday mornings, students from the University of Texas's Cockrell School of Engineering come to the museum and present activities so that children can explore engineering.

   Children could make paper airplanes, build a working circuit or a sailboat car while engaging their minds in engineering but they'll just call it FUN!! Children are never too young to start exploring the sciences. They even have activities that help children explore math through hands on exploration and show them that math is everywhere, in their homes, yards, everywhere they go.
