Rocket Park Mini Golf

Critics' pick

Beneath the shadow of two retired NASA rockets, kids can tee off at this real outdoor course that mimics the path of a complete space flight. As they play the nine holes, little ones must take careful aim to avoid gravity wells, wormholes, warped space and asteroids; they'll also learn about the laws of motion that move spaceships through the air. The final hole, called "Splash Down," has players putt at a target on a rotating model Earth. Ages 6 and up.

"The Secret World Inside You: The Human Microbiome"

At a very young age, kids are taught that germs are "yucky" and should be eliminated, but now they'll find out that there's much more to those tiny microorganisms that live on and inside our bodies. In this special exhibition, the Museum of Natural History invites families to take a closer look at the 100 trillion bacteria and viruses that make up our microbiome, demonstrating how the microbes can help make vitamins, digest food, pump up our immune system and even affect moods and behavior. Kids can get hands-on with interactive displays, showing where the bacteria live, how we interact with them and beyond. Ages 6 and up.

“Vikings Exhibition”

Travel back in time to the Viking Age from the 8th to 11th centuries in this historical exhibition. Featuring more than 500 artifacts—many never seen before outside Scandinavia—it immerses visitors in Viking culture and allows them to learn more about Viking family and community, religion and rituals, travel and trade, aristocracy and slavery and the roles of women. As visitors view artifacts like Viking helmets, wrought brooches, gold and silver pendants, the oldest known Scandinavian crucifix and swords, they’ll gain a broader understanding of Norse craftsmanship and Viking mythology. Highlights of the exhibition include the Gokstad II, a replica of a Scandinavian Viking Boat and interactive experiences like excavation of a virtual boat grave and a Scandinavian board game. All ages.
