When we were kids, museums consisted of antiques under glass and lots of "Do Not Touch" signs. Kids now-a-days have the opportunity to visit museums that encourage you to touch and play and make a mess. The McKenna Children's Museum does this well.
To say we had fun is an understatement. I could definitely spend an entire morning or afternoon here and still find new things to play with. McKenna Children's Museum is worthy of repeat visits and a fantastic place to beat the heat this summer!
