view web site ›'s insider take:

Tour a captured U-505 German Sub, take a trip into a coal mine, walk through a model of the human heart, or watch genetically engineered chicks hatch at this huge hands-on science museum. Lines form early for the A-list exhibits: a renovated Pioneer Zephyr train; a full-size 727 airplane that replays recordings from United Flight 9457's black box; and Colleen Moore's Fairy Castle, a lavishly decorated dream dollhouse built in 1928 with real diamonds and emeralds in the chandeliers. View fruit flies under a microscope or digitize yourself at Networld, an immersion into the Internet. You'll feel like you're flying the space shuttle at the center's five-story Omnimax Theater.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 9:30 am to 4 pm, Sundays 11 am to 4 pm.
