I'm not sure most people know that younger children - even 3 year olds - will get a lot out of their visit. There are many manipulative activities that engage younger ones. Several exhibits have role playing options. Families can be miners, pretend to serve ice cream from a old soda fountain, learn about ration books, manipulate wind, try their hands at a telegraph message, sit inside a WWII airplane and so much more. Early readers can handle most of the posted information and signs. It's a perfect opportunity to talk about the past, recall your own history and share knowledge about events with children.
