First to Review

The recently expanded North Carolina Museum of Life and Science is one best places in Durham to bring kids. You could spend hours in the indoor space, but the museum shines in its outdoor space. The new "Hideaway Woods" exhibit is collection of tree houses and bridges that includes a section for toddlers. There's also a trail of dinosaurs, a butterfly house, a petting zoo, bears, wolves, and a small group of lemurs. There's also a cafe on site that offers a variety of healthy, local options. It's a bit North of downtown, so it's car dependent.
