Bring an extra set of clothes for this one! Water Ways, the museum’s recently renovated, hands-on exhibit is a big favorite. My kids could have stayed the whole day — sculpting ice with various tools, shaping mist and forming fountains. Each day during the week of February Break brings special events with guests including singer/storytellers, mimes, engineers and architects. On Thursday, a Raptor Rehabilitator will introduce your kids to the majestic world of birds of prey, including a yellow eagle, a tiny owl and a falcon.  Check the calendar on the website for times and specifics. Packing a lunch is a good idea (a lunchroom is available but no food service on site). Free parking.
