Summary The number of childrens museums in the United States has grown steadily in the past twenty years, a reflection not only of their popularity but also of the desire by families to add an educational experience to their vacations and other recreational activities. Many of the museums feature hands-on activities, making it all both interactive and fun. Necessary information on 242 childrens museums can be found in this state-by-state guidebook. Each entry opens with a capsule description of the museum that includes a brief history, an overview of exhibits and the age group for which the museum is most appropriate. The hours of operation, admission fees, other sites of interest in the area, and the museums address and phone number are then provided. Fax numbers, Internet sites, and e-mail addresses are also given when available.
