Whether you have kids or want to feel like one again, this place will get your synapses firing.
At Science World, “interactive” is not just a flashy word to mean fun. You will get your hands wet. You can control your own optical illusion with lights, see how flexible your body is, or scan your skin for evidence of sun damage. You can shoot balls through vacuum tubes, or create a hydroelectric dam. Budget at least two hours to do the museum thoroughly.
