10 Best Children’s Museums: 2011
Tons of cool stuff to touch, one-of-a-kind educational exhibits, and special events galore put these kid-driven museums on top of our must-visit list.

Serving Up Fun
Truth is, a kid would have a blast in any children’s museum. Turning knobs, building stuff, dressing up, touching everything — what’s not to like? But as moms, we’re pickier — especially if it takes a couple hours to get there and we’re going to spend up to $50 on our family’s admission. That’s why Parents surveyed children’s museums to see which ones have clever educational exhibits, mommy-and-me outings and festivals, healthy places for lunch, nursing areas, family restrooms, and stroller parking. We started with the 300-plus members of the Association of Children’s Museums and nixed those without a lot for kids under 3. Then we asked the rest 30 questions to help us decide which museums were the leaders. After tallying the scores, we got great insider tips from local moms. more→
