  1. We went to the aviation and then the nature one last time we were there, both free and both in a Thursday evening. We learned a lot and really enjoyed both!

  2. We went last week on Thursday to aviation museum and Kids museum, the kids had lots of fun. We even checked quickly the medevial and Franklin rooms expositions. For both first places the entrances were free and know they enjoyed it. By the time we checked quickly the expositions rooms, kids didn’t have much interest and were tired. For my three year old toddler running around one hour was enough to take a look at the aviation museum. For my two older kids 6 & 9 they wanted to know a little more and we rushed on some parts but we plan on coming back on another time. In the past we have gone twice to nature museum and the kids loved it there. My boy enjoyed above all the room with the dinosaurs replicates. So for small kids the kids museum and nature museum will be something to recommend.

  3. I have done museum of nature several times it’s always a hit with all ages we enjoy aviation museum as well and my pre teens and husband love science and tech museum we haven’t visited other ones yet but are planning too!
