Best Museum: Museum of Discovery and Science

The Museum of Discovery and Science gets high marks for its devotion to instilling young minds with curiosity about technology, ancient civilizations and the natural world around them. But it’s also just a fun space for families to hang out, while the science sneaks up on you with diversions such as the simulated flights in the multisensory 7D theater capsule in “To Fly,” the explosive chemistry experiments in the “KaBoom! Show” and the ever-popular otter exhibit.
