If you’re into exhibits loaded with interactive bells and whistles, this expansive Hyde Park locale is your ticket. The museum’s focus is broad, with permanent displays that include the popular mirror maze in the "Numbers in Nature" exhibit, the whiz-bang "Science Storms," plus the old faves: a restored U-505 German submarine, a simulated coal mine and a vintage diesel-electric train. The museum also boasts a five-story Giant Dome Theater outfitted with a new, state-of-the-art projection system. After you make your way through the sprawling museum, kick back and immerse yourself in a handful of larger-than-life-movies at the theater.

I've been coming here since I was a kid in the science club! It is still as interesting as an adult!
I have been to this museum several times and I love it because it is both educational for adults and there are so many things for children to do there as well.
