The Betty Brinn Children's Museum is an educational, yet entertaining, destination for families with young kids. Designed especially to promote the healthy development of children in their formative years, from birth through age ten, the museum's exhibits are fully interactive. Chances are your children will never suspect they're at a "museum," as to them it will seem more like a giant fun-zone.
If you take the time to look at the exhibits and read what they're about, they're really quite cool, and an inquisitive adult can learn something here too. You'll hear what what the body sounds like when it processes food in the digestion tunnel, or learn new dance steps in the dance studio. For those with babies or young children too little for dancing, there is also Betty's Busy Backyard, a play-zone for children under four that features padded corners and a lower-key atmosphere.
