Best Science Museums & Planetariums to Visit on Your Family Weekend Getaway

Published: 02/02/2015
By VacationIdea, Dream Travel Magazine -- Most children are interested in science while growing up and if you nurture their interest it will blossom into a life-long passion for exploring the wonders of the natural world. A hands-on exhibit, workshop or an enthusiastic speaker will make kids even more excited to learn new scientific concepts at home and in school. Plan your family vacation to one of these amazing science museums in the U.S. If you have been stargazing in your back yard, a trip to a planetarium can give the whole family new ideas for further exploration. If you live in a city, seeing a projection of the Milky Way may inspire you to take a family trip to a remote destination where you can observe the clear night sky. All the museums that made our list are one-of-a-kind.

Utah - The Leonardo in Salt Lake City
Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci and his insatiable quest for knowledge, the Leonardo Museum in Salt Lake City offers fun hands-on displays, water play, origami, an amazing science room, as well as unique temporary exhibits. Kids can participate in guided activities and learn how to assemble a rubber band-powered car from recycled materials, or make the perfect paper airplane.
