In this post, I mentioned most of my tips for visiting the museum, but I've got a few more:
- Check out the paper they give you when you enter to find the times of all the interactive programs and cart demonstrations the museum offers. My sister was doing one on all the weapons from the Painted Soldiers, which my children loved!
- You can leave your phone and charger with the concierge to charge if needed.
- There were some nice healthy selections of baby friendly food (grapes, cheese, boiled eggs, mandarin oranges, etc.), but of course they were expensive as all the food court is pricey.
- Many exhibits now have these neat family guides. Take a look at them to get more ideas with how to interact with the exhibits.
