Description [edit]
The Betty Brinn Children's Museum is the only area museum designed specifically for kids under 10. The museum uses hands-on exhibits and role playing to stimulate learning.

Children can explore the workings of the human body, learn about economics and commerce, create their own toys and even produce their own television show. There is also the "play port" for toddlers ages three and under.
